The purpose of the dinner is to share with Pittsburghers traditional Syrian foods. Hoda, the Syrian cook helping to prepare the meal will be at the dinner and will be available to speak about her experience and to share stories about her family and their culture.
Hoda came to the United States in the summer of 2016 with her elderly parents and younger brother and sister. They were matched in Hello Neighbor's first cohort in 2017 with a Pittsburgh-based chef, Dan McGhee of Iron Born Pizza. They have seen each other almost weekly since then! While they do a variety of activities together cooking is the heart and soul of their friendship.
A portion of the proceeds from this event go directly to support Hoda and her family and she is so excited to cook for everyone! The remainder of the proceeds will go towards supporting Hello Neighbor's refugee mentorship program.
Seating is limited to 24 seats and is BYOB. We are asking for all tickets to be pre-sold so we can prepare the right amount of food. Please join us for this unique and exciting culinary experience!
Hello Neighbor is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that works to improve the lives of recently resettled refugee and immigrant families by matching them with Americans as mentors and friends to guide and support them in their new lives. Since launching in 2017 over 70 refugee and immigrant families from 11 countries have been matched with their new neighbors to help them feel welcome and gain confidence in their new lives in Pittsburgh.
