East African Women Offer Virtual Cooking Class to WIC Participants, Meal Order Pickup

Founder of cultural organization revisits her nonprofit roots as past American Red Cross WIC employee on Women’s History Month

San Diego CA— United Women of East Africa has long been a center for our community members to connect over their shared backgrounds. During the next two weeks, UWEAST offers two different options for people to support the organization: a virtual cooking class and takeout orders.

The virtual cooking class, named The Thursday Taste, holds additional significance as founder of United Women of East Africa Sahra Abdi partners with her former workplace American Red Cross WIC for Women’s History Month and National Nutrition Month. WIC’s registered dietitians will advise on the health benefits of the traditional East African dish throughout the event.

By ordering food through United Women of East Africa’s Baraka and Bilal Catering kitchen, the San Diego community will get to know one facet of East African culture while enjoying delicious food and supporting an intentional mission.
