Vote for us in LA2050’s Grant Challenge

We’re so excited for your support! Thank you for considering a VOTE for Tiyya in LA2050’s Grant Challenge.

The Tiyya Foundation launched Flavors from Afar in June 2018. Flavors from Afar uses food 1) to strengthen our community by bridging Angelenos with LA-newcomers and 2) to create sustainable jobs for refugees. We partner with home-taught refugee chefs from our diverse Tiyya community to share their cultural cuisines and to celebrate their stories over intimate, curated dinner experiences with fellow Angelenos.

Over the past 8 months, we’ve hosted incredible catered lunches and 4-course dinner experiences across Los Angeles and Orange County. As we near our 1-year anniversary, we want to grow in consistency and impact. Winning $100,000 will enable us:

  • to expand our bandwidth from hosting one-off events to offering year-around services and events

  • to provide long-term employment to 10 refugee chefs

  • to support the production of 5,000+ meals within the LA community each year

We greatly appreciate your vote!
