Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) is excited to invite you to participate in our updated annual fundraiser, Global Table TO GO. We are pleased to innovate and make this year’s fundraiser more accessible through a series of festive evenings of carry-out cuisine, cultural activities and enrichments that showcase refugee and immigrant restaurateurs. Our Global Table TO GO will take place over the course of four Monday evenings in May 2021:

Global Table TO GO shows the tenacity and positivity of Kansas City and creates a space to learn about our different cultures from the comfort of your own home. We invite you to join and show the community your appreciation for the welcoming spirit that makes us Kansas City Strong.

How it works:

Select your preferred ticket option:

-Single tickets: Each ticket comes with meals for two on the night of your choice.

-Four evening package: Two meals for each of the four nights.

-Indicate your dietary preferences at checkout. Each evening will have vegetarian or vegan and gluten free options.

-On the day of the event, pick up your meal and tool kit from JVS volunteers who will be at the restaurant to greet you between 4:00 and 6:30 pm.

-Go home and enjoy this international cuisine!
