Description: 
Help volunteer with Foodhini on Saturday May 13th at an event hosted by Shakti, a DC based organization that promotes global women artists. Shakti will be hosting an artist showcase with select art works for purchase. Proceeds will go towards the Tahirih Justice Center, a local non profit supporting refugee & immigrant women.  
 
Foodhini is partnering up for the event to provide light appetizers from our incredible chefs, speak about our mission, and to connect with you.
 
Foodhini was founded on the idea that food can be used to create sustainable jobs for communities in need and also satisfy the appetites of hungry foodies in search of authentic multicultural meals.
 
Many immigrant & refugee communities face financial, educational, and cultural barriers that can limit their access to sustainable living wage jobs. By providing a platform for communities of diaspora to use their existing culinary skills to prepare and sell their home cooked cultural cuisines, Foodhini empowers these communities to bypass those barriers and create new opportunities. Through our shared revenue model, a significant portion of the money you spend on a Foodhini meal goes directly to the incredible chef that prepared your meal.
