Feasts of Resistance Returns for 2018

Resistance doesn’t only take the form of protests and marches—it’s in the food we share, the stories we tell, the gardens we grow.

Food shapes culture and conflict shapes food—that’s the premise of our Feasts of Resistance class series. In these hand-on cooking classes, you’ll explore, cook, and eat iconic dishes from around the world—Burma to Ethiopia, Syria to Haiti, and beyond—that were created or affected by social or political unrest.

Girls from the 2017 Feasts of Resistance youth program
with GirlForward learned, cooked, and ate together.

Food is a common language we all share, and this class is perfect opportunity to learn about and support refugee issues on a local level, all while enjoying a delicious meal in the process. Proceeds from the public Feasts of Resistance classes fund PGP’s summer refugee programs, including a cooking class series for teen refugee girls in partnership with GirlForward.

More than 100 people joined our public class
series last year to learn, cook, and eat together.

The locations featured in the classes were chosen to highlight the stories of GirlForward participants. This summer, PGP will be working with girls to share stories from their countries as we learn, cook, and eat together. Cooking classes are taught by Chef Alvin Yu, owner of Fyusion Dining and a member of PGP’s Board of Directors.
