Tapestry Suppers is a food-focused movement that resists hate. We use the power of the meal to foster community, build awareness about different cultures and support charitable causes. We believe that diversity strengthens and enriches communities, and that food is a powerful tool to connect with and learn about other cultures.

Our mission is to:

  • Elevate underrepresented immigrant voices;

  • Educate the public about the diversity of food cultures, using our gatherings as a platform for real, in-person connection and conversation; and,

  • Support charities that work with immigrant and underprivileged populations.

When I started to cook for Hanloh, I had to be creative with vegetarian and vegan dishes. I struggled with tofu and meat substitutes which can be delicious, but when used without intention, they don’t make great dishes and actually diminish the complexities and nuances of flavor that make Thai cuisine so unique."
