The DISHES team have been slowly revealing some of the exciting details about the dinner on February 8th. Aside from announcing fresh team members, they’ve also been teasing us with short descriptions of the projects. Here’s the breakdown:
Second Line Syracuse is a New Orleans style brass band with a Central NY flare. This project aims to improve Syracuse by energizing the streets with live music and bringing neighbors together with spontaneous celebration.
Yoga for everyone! This project pitches the concept of free yoga for community members that would not otherwise be able to afford classes or have the means to travel to a class outside their neighborhood.
Her Village Day is a gathering of women from many nations sharing crafting, art, ethnic cooking lessons, and more to experience the beautiful diversity of our community.
The Songambele Cultural & Edalt Education Foundation’s project seeks to assist refugees with reading and writing skills while allowing them to share their culture with the Syracuse community.
The Cooperative Federal Student Cash Stash Pilot is a new financial capability program at three Syracuse high schools, where students will use a smart phone app to connect with mentors and create and reach savings goals.
Tickets for DISHES go on sale tomorrow, January 25th. For more information, visit their website and Facebook page.
DISHES brings together the Syracuse community to share a delicious meal, listen to one another’s suggestions for community-based innovative projects, and vote on the idea that has the most potential. A micro-grant of $1,000, collected from the evening’s ticket sales, is then awarded to the audience favorite.
