datwlogo2The International Rescue Committee and the Utah Refugee Coalition’s upcoming Dining Around the World fundraiser is just around the corner. Dining Around the World is a collaboration between local restaurants, refugees in Salt Lake City, and local non-profit organizations. Chefs will create a special entrée inspired by produce from the New Roots agriculture program and the refugee community to feature in their restaurant the week of Saturday, August 24th to Saturday, August 31st. Proceeds from the dish will benefit the International Rescue Committee and the Utah Refugee Coalition.

I certainly encourage all Salt Lakers to participate in this event to try food from Sudan, Iraq, Burma, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This event only happens once a year at participating local restaurants. So, mark your calendar, head out to Cafe Trio, Caffe Niche, Squatters Pub & Brewery, The Tin Angel Cafe, Mazza’s on 9th and 9th, and the Avenues Bistro on Third, then purchase the special entree to support the diverse refugee community here.
