Peace Meal Solidarity

Peace Meal Solidarity is a project that engages families with young children in the community in activities that promote inclusion and appreciation of diversity by providing globally-inspired meals and early literacy materials. Our community meals may be over, but we encourage families to learn about other cultures in respectful ways at home that honor their uniqueness and history.

This page will be frequently updated!

This year, many of our 5toONE playgroups will feature a multicultural snack as part of this event series. Playgroup registration is required for snack series participation. Meal events will have separate registrations to be found on this page. It’s so exciting to try new foods and “travel” around the world together!

Want to participate in 2023?

We are looking for partners to host meals and parents to act as cultural ambassadors.

Our partner meeting was held on Tuesday, November 29 2022 from 2-3:00. You can watch the recording here. If you’d like to view the slide deck, click here.

Join us in sending a message of unity and multicultural celebration as we partake in shared “grab-and-go” meals together and learn about our communities in Northern Michigan. Our January organizational meeting will be announced soon.  An updated listing of partners offering unique globally inspired meals in February, March, and April will be posted here and updated frequently.  Special event “passports” will be issued for your chance to win prizes, have some fun, and maybe even learn something new about your heritage, other cultures, and your community. Prepare for travel and tag us on social media #PeaceMealSolidarity and on Instagram! Take a look at the passport you will receive at any of our events. Be sure to bring it to the events you attend if you already have one!
