Event Details

In celebration of World Food Day, join us for the 47th meal of the United Noshes alphabetical journey through the cuisines of the United Nations members, and our largest yet!

We'll be cooking a feast from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with both meat and vegetarian options likely including chicken in palmnut sauce, peanut stew, and fufu. It's BYOB.

As always we're raising money for the World Food Program USA, providing emergency food, food security and nutrition around the world including the DRC. Every dollar beyond the cost of the food goes straight to supporting this vital work, and in fact will be doubled by Google. We're expecting this event to tip our total fundraising past the $10,000 mark! (Note that this ticket is not tax-deductible due to how we have to structure it to get the donation doubled. But you're always welcome to make a tax-deductible donation directly to WFPUSA.)

Since the Brooklyn apartment where we normally host Noshes is a wee bit small for an event this size, the good people at Hostelling International New York have generously opened their kitchen and garden to us. (In the event of poor weather we'll eat indoors.)

If you are from or have spent time in the DRC, we would appreciate whatever help you can lend to make this evening reflect your experience. And if you're interested to volunteer as a cook, server, DJ, etc., we are eager for help! Please let us know at unitednoshes@gmail.com.

See you on the Upper West Side on October 14!

Organizer

United Noshes

United Noshes is a multi-year project to cook one feast from every United Nations member and permanent observer in alphabetical order. We strive to create as authentic a meal as our capacity affords, carefully researching recipes and investing the necessary time in traditional preparation methods. We cherish breaking bread (or naan or whatever is appropriate) with friends – both new and old.

We feel so lucky to not only to have enough food to survive, but also to be able to eat for enjoyment and share food with our friends through our United Noshes dinners.  We recognize that privilege does not exist in much of the world. That’s why we ask guests to make a donation to World Food Program USA in support of the United Nations World Food Program, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger. As of August 2012, we have raised a total of $8,500 for WFP USA.
