A Night of International Food and Entertainment!

Guest of Honor:
 United Church of Christ Levittown

The International Dinner is a wonderful and flavorful experience of amazing dishes from around the world. The authentic flavors of these international cuisines are made for you by Welcoming the Stranger students. Join us for entertainment, an auction and raffle, activities, and fellowship with your immigrant and American neighbors alike. We look forward to seeing you there!

What is the International Dinner?

The International Dinner is a large potluck dinner of unique dishes from around the world. Welcoming the Stranger students provide their best recipes to share with everyone in fellowship. Join us for entertainment, an auction and raffle, activities, and a chance to mingle with your immigrant and American neighbors alike. We look forward to seeing you there!

At this year’s event, we are pleased to honor United Church of Christ, Levittown. United Church of Christ Levittown has been a longtime, dedicated partner of Welcoming the Stranger’s mission to provide free educational opportunities to immigrants and refugees. Please join us in congratulating United Church of Christ Levittown for their deserved recognition.

Our entertainment will be provided by Jacob Graff, whose music can be heard here: https://jacobgraffmusic.com

What should I bring to the dinner?

Please bring your family and friends to share in a wonderful evening together. Bring an openness and willingness to trying new foods - you will get a sampling plate of food from all over the globe. Dishes will be labeled at a buffet line and you can choose what you would like to add to your plate as you move down the line. There are usually plenty of options for most types of diets. You are welcome to bring a dish to share with everyone as well (though not required) - if you are going to share a dish, please let us know so we can include it in our planning process. Bring your checkbook and some cash so you can participate in our silent auction and raffle. We have extensive prizes so that many people go home winners!

What is Welcoming the Stranger?

Welcoming the Stranger provides free education and resources for adult immigrants and refugees to the United States. We teach English, computer skills, and U.S. citizenship preparation to immigrants and refugees. Since 1999, we have educated over 4,000 students from 100 different countries.
