Eat For Equity: The Welcome Table / Center for Victims of Torture

“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 the welcome table.

Eat for Equity invites 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.

The meal features dishes from Mo, Mecca, and Jametta.

Seating is limited at this family-style meal. Please plan to arrive at 6 pm for the feast. A free will offering will be collected during dinner.

  • Saturday, November 17

  • 6 pm - 8:30 pm

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.

The Center for Victims of Torture is forging new ways to advance human rights and build a future free from torture. Through research, training, advocacy and our healing services for survivors, each initiative we undertake plays a role in building a larger vision for the torture rehabilitation movement. We provide a bridge between torture victims, the local community and society as a whole, working to restore the dignity of the human spirit one survivor at a time.
