Tabemashou - “Nourishing the Body and the Soul”

Tabemashou is a bimonthly event series centering on food and cooking, and their relationships to identity, culture, and community. Tabemashou is a space to gather in fellowship and practice community care, through cooking and eating together. Food and foodways have historically been the site of violence, power, reclamation, survival, and identity formation; engaging with that and cooking together is a way of connecting to ourselves, our ancestors, and to one another.

New Format! The next Tabemashou is scheduled for Friday, June 28th at Aldersgate UMC at 6:30 PM

On June 28th, we will be trying a new format. If you would like to help in the final preparations of the meal, come at 6:30 pm. If you are interested in the meal and conversation, please feel free to come at 7 pm. All are invited. Come join us for this engaging time.
