So, WHAT IS THis visual celebration OF TOGETHERNESS?

Endorsed by the City of Missoula, we are proclaiming a message of unity across lines of country of origin, culture, and language for neighbors both new and old.  We join the growing number of communities who recognize that being a welcoming community for all makes us all stronger together. We will show that  Missoula is the kind of place where diverse people feel valued and want to put down roots. We ask that people join with us in embracing the unity in community and exclaiming that Together, We Are Missoula!

UNITED WE EAT

#unitedweeat

OUR MONTHLY SUPPER CLUB is a unique opportunity to enjoy a professionally prepared meal by a refugee family in Missoula in partnership with a local restaurant. Working with recipes and traditions passed down generations, no two dinners are the same!

UNITED WE EAT @home is here! We just announced the the start of our pilot program to provide a weekly Wednesday pick-up meal to take home and enjoy with your family! Menus are released on Friday mornings- visit the new unitedweeatmt.org website to sign up and be the first to participate in this delicious new adventure!

Not only is participating in United We Eat events a fun and delicious way to learn more about Missoula’s refugee community, but it also brings economic opportunity for the participating families and works towards creating an inclusive social and economic landscape for refugees in Missoula.

Interested in helping with this exciting food endeavor? See our volunteer opportunities for more information.

This event honors the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. We are excited to celebrate the addition of these families to our community with a soccer tournament and community party.

The day long tournament comes down to The World Cup Match of the final two teams. This is followed immediately by a community celebration (5-8pm) with food, drinks, kids activities and music lasting into the evening.
