“These dinners are a great place to learn and share” said a recent participant at a RaVE community feast. These monthly events at the Rainier Community Center are a wonderful mix of neighbors, community based organizations and people interested in great food. In April and May we held Asian New Year themed dinners with succulent dishes such as green papaya salad and spicy curries.
The June barbecue held at RBUFW drew many new attendees including students from the Rainier Beach High School culinary classes and field trip students who returned with their families to enjoy the delectable food, great music and lively conversations with new friends.
The developing community spirit will continue as RaVE transitions dinner leadership from core staff to local residents. We are taking off August but be sure to mark your calendars for the third Friday in September to come on down and cook up community!
