Be My Guest: How can food bridge discord and difference

October 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join Twin Cities PBS for an interactive virtual event that explores how food weaves together the mundane and the holy.
We examine the various reasons why communities pray and bless their food. We learn how two chefs of different faiths find common ground through food, and we reflect on our own individual food practices.
And what better way to talk about food than by eating together! Join us as we share a meal and explore these questions and more with the help of community storytellers and original media designed to foster empathy and solidarity among our Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
Attendees located in the Twin Cities metro are invited to enjoy a meal provided by India Cafe in Minneapolis. Pick up details provided at registration.
Featuring: Host Hibo Glued, University of Minnesota’s food and religion expert Dr. Peter Harle, Chef and Nutrition Consultant Jamal Hashi, and Chef Imani Jackson of Chopped & Served
Be My Guest is a multi-course engagement project, combining interactive events that center around food as an invitation for storytelling and short form media, creating conversation and connection between Muslim and non-Muslim communities across Minnesota.
Join us in making new connections — virtually — and engage in meaningful dialogue with the aim of activating empathy across differences. There is no cost to participate.
