Food for Thought — where food breaks down barriers and brings us all to the table! Introducing our latest program created to connect and inspire women of the OWA.
Food for Thought was created to facilitate dialogue with our neighbors and to embrace and highlight the diversity of our OWA members. Gathering together at the table promotes fellowship and provides a place of love and peace.
In our first Food for Thought video, Dr. Bianes shares one of her favorite Filipino dishes, Pancit Bihon.
Interested in becoming a Food for Thought Presenter? As a presenter on Food for Thought, we would like you to submit a 1- to 2-minute video of you sharing with us the significance of your recipe or food item, along with a photo. If you are camera shy, you can just submit something in writing.
The recipe can have cultural significance or it can just be something you love. It can be a food you prepare on special occasions, or it can be a regional food item you can't wait to share.
Looking forward to your submissions!
