“I’ve never had an in-depth conversation with someone from Somalia. I loved it. It never would have happened if he wasn’t sitting across the table.”
Join us at one long, welcome table.
Eat for Equity and American Refugee Committee invite you to a feast that connects us to each other---across cultures, nationalities, and neighborhoods.
Join us for a four-course feast designed by four cooks, and prepared by a team of volunteers. Courses will celebrate and reflect each cook’s personal heritage and immigration story. Each guest will be invited to share their own experiences, to find connection and empathy in a shared meal.
Seating is limited at this family-style meal. Please plan to arrive at 7 pm for the feast. A free will offering will be collected during dinner.
Hosted by Paikka, a modern, industrial event venue in the heart of the Twin Cities.

American Refugee Committee programs are built from the ground up. We work with people at the most vulnerable points in their lives, when they have lost everything to war or disaster. They let us know what they need most, and we work together to develop ways to help them get it. Our programs are as diverse as the people we serve, but they all work together for the same goal: to help people take back control of their lives.
Our 1,800 staff members help nearly 3 million people a year throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East. ARC is also building a 21st Century humanitarian organization rooted in co-creating with committed people to provide more meaningful solutions to humanitarian crises worldwide. Through these efforts, ARC won the Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation. ARC is based in Minneapolis.
Eat for Equity builds a culture of generosity through sustainable community feasts. We are a nonprofit that organizes regular benefit dinners, engaging communities to eat, drink, give what they can - and together, raise thousands of dollars for a greater cause.
