With all that is happening in the world and the urgent need for peace to help communities heal and rebuild, we at UNA-OKC, believe in the the power of food as tool of peace. Peace begins with individual action and we believe nothing starts a conversation better than a good meal. We believe in the power of food in cultivating community knowledge and power that builds foundations, friendships, collaborations, and connections.
An emerging field in diplomatic relations, culinary diplomacy, studies how food can be used as a tool to promote relationship-building, cooperation, and peace. It is one of the oldest diplomatic tools in use today. Read more about it here.
With all of this in mind, we hope you can join us for a community culture potluck. No community affiliation necessary. Just bring yourself, a dish (from your culture if applicable and if you feel comfortable), and an open mind and heart. Let’s nourish ourselves as we build bonds and bridges.
This event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at Nappy Roots Books located at 3705 Springlake Drive, OKC 73111 (the corner store at NW 37th and Kelley Avenue in Park Plaza).
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there.
