Multicultural Food Pop-up and Community Gathering

Join us for an evening of community gathering with African and Middle Eastern treats prepared by members of Columbia’s refugee community from 5:30-8:30pm on Thursday, August 22nd.

The event is inspired by the recent World Refugee Day 2019 celebration hosted by Refugee & Immigration Services – CCCNMO, as well as Columbia’s last East-African food pop-up provided by refugees in 2017.

Our hope is to continue bring our community at-large together. Come enjoy the patio, refreshments, and new friends!
