Event Details

You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club to support refugee families recently settled in St. Louis. Enjoy food, conversation, and catching up with friends – old and new. From cultural exchange to just plain fun, look forward to a great evening.

These meals present an opportunity for immigrant families to share knowledge and skills unique to them. It is also an opportunity for us to get a glimpse into their culture. These fundraising efforts can set them on a path of greater independence and confidence in their lives here in in the USA.

When you attend a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club, your meal will be prepared by immigrant neighbors who will share their culture and cooking skills by providing a table full of traditional food from their country of origin.

Suggested donation:  $30 per person.

The event will be held on Friday, June 14, 2019 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at St. Margaret of Scotland Church, 3854 Flad Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110 (at the corner of Flad and 39th. Access to basement hall is on 39th). St. Margaret of Scotland is a Catholic parish whose justice ministry programming focuses on immigrant and refugee rights and welcome.

The hall is in the church basement and there are steps. There is an elevator should anyone need it.  In order to use the elevator, please contact the parish at 314-776-0363 ahead of time to arrange access to the elevator. We hope you will come and join us!
