Sunday Supper Foundation at the farm!

Last week, we hosted a lovely event put on by the Sunday Supper Foundation. If you don't know about them, check out this Dallas Morning News article. The nonprofit was started by two friends who wanted to change the way Americans see refugees, so they started monthly dinner parties connecting local refugee families to the broader Dallas community. This month, Sakina, a single mom from Afghanistan with six children, cooked truly delicious rice, meatballs and other Afghan dishes for a group of about 60 people from all across the metroplex. As we gathered around several long tables in the barn, we heard the older girls in the family tell their story. “I feel like I’m on TV!” was said more than once. These girls love their mother so dearly, and their gratitude for her and the 60 hours a week she works to support them is evident and touching. What a privilege to meet them and help them on their journey! All of the proceeds from the dinner went home with the family.
