From our family to yours!
United We Eat @home is a new project from Soft Landing Missoula that is building off of the popularity of our monthly United We Eat Supper Club and other food opportunities.
United We Eat aims to celebrate the incredible culinary talent of Missoula’s newest neighbors and international residents, whose rich and flavorful cooking traditions provide a cultural bridge that enriches our shared community.
For families forced to leave everything behind, the unique things that can be carried—the things that are kept in hearts and heads—oftentimes are recipes and traditions surrounding food. With interest and requests from refugee and immigrant families, SLM began to provide a platform for people to feel valued by sharing their food with their new community. Beginning in the summer of 2017, SLM supported families selling food at the Missoula Farmers’ Market and worked with two individuals to navigate licensing requirements and paperwork for opening their own businesses. Increased interest on the part of refugees, immigrants, and the Missoula community led us down the path of our successful monthly Supper Club in partnership with local restaurants, holiday cookie sales, and most recently- the United We Eat @home weekly take-out meal program over the summer of 2019.
We are so excited to have finished such a successful pilot program this summer and can’t wait to start up again soon!
In the mean time, we are offering two holiday cookie sales (Thanksgiving and Christmas) to round out the year, with much behind the scenes work going on to bring you and incredible rotating selection of weekly take home dinners again in the new year!
Be sure to sign up for emails so you are in the loop for any special offers and announcements!
In a world divided, we believe it is United We Eat!
