Green Card Food Voices: Stories of Minnesota Immigrants Working in Local Food
September 16, 2021
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Twin Cities Food Co-ops and Green Card Voices as we hear the stories of local immigrant business owners and learn about their journey to the US, building a life in the Twin Cities, and owning a business through a pandemic and civil unrest. Join our panelists Naima Dhore of Somali American Farmers Association, Belén Rodríguez of Quebracho Empanadas, and Ruhel Islam of Gandhi Mahal and Curry in a Hurry.
After the stories, join in a virtual discussion with local immigrant business owners, Green Card Voices and other local nonprofits about the immigrant experience in the Twin Cities, how we can better connect with our neighbors, and what we can do to support immigrants in our community.
