A few months back, my family and I were eating really crazy delicious food at a local café. When we learned the cook was a Syrian refugee, I wanted to know more about her story, starting with: how did you make this food taste so good.? I started to wonder what it must be like to be a refugee, and then I started to wonder why there are so few opportunities to really get to know my neighbors. So I turned to my local Cultural Arts Center, and asked them if they wanted to do something cultural. We checked out the Refugees Welcome to Dinner Project. Clifton Cultural Arts Center took it from there.
Clifton Cultural Arts Center will be holding a free potuck dinner for members of our community, old and new (and middle-aged like me) from 6-8 pm on October 19. I am so glad we will all get the opportunity to share a meal together.
And yes, my contribution to the potluck will align with my MS Diet. No cheating!
