YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City
The Welcome Project is excited to announce our
12th Annual YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City Celebration
To protect the health and safety of our staff and volunteers, our event will again be held virtually this year. Please join us on Thursday, June 3rd 2021 at 6pm for a virtual fundraiser.
YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City is The Welcome Project’s annual fundraiser. YUM is a huge part of what makes The Welcome Project’s daily programming possible.
YUM 2021 will celebrate the flavors of Somerville and the Welcome Project’s transformative work with immigrant families. This isn’t just any virtual event. In addition to honoring our local immigrant run-restaurants, you’ll cook along with us and learn to make an authentic dish hosted by one of our featured restaurants. YUM will also be jam packed with information about how to support issues affecting immigrant families in your community. This year, you can show your support for the immigrant-run restaurants that make Somerville great by ordering food from them during the event. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get more involved in your community and experience the tastes of Immigrant City!
