“Pupusas, Cassava Cakes and Falafel! 'Bridges through Bread' fosters community and cross-generational communication through cooking and conversation. Immigrant and refugee parents and elders will be the leaders and experts, teaching students and families how to cook international meals. Aided by interpreters, the cooks will teach about different dishes and customs from their countries of origin. Participants can replicate the delicious cuisine with the help of our community cookbook and cultural anthology, culminating projects compiled and created by newcomer ESOL students in the Albemarle County, Virginia Public Schools. Our program is a partnership between community organizations and students and families in the Albemarle County and the Charlottesville City Schools.”
