Eat With Muslims


A New Way To Connect Communities Though Sharing Food and Stories 

 

Let's Sit together

 Unity is Strength, Division is Weakness

-Swahili Proverb

In an atmosphere of increasing hate and intolerance, we must become a greater and proactive force for compassion and understanding. The Eat with Muslims (EWM) project is a grass-roots movement to help aggressively counter misconceptions of Muslims. We live in an age where neighbors don’t get to know one another anymore, making it easy for preconceived notions to thrive. We are committed to building bridges between people of different cultures and faiths, bringing them together over delicious food and fostering dialogue. This project is designed to give the American Muslim community the chance to reach out and take charge of their narrative. We believe that eating together and sharing our stories is what will strengthen and enrich our country and our values.

Muslims are one of the most hospitable, culturally diverse, and unique groups of people in the world, yet they face many challenges because people are afraid or stereotype them. Here in America, we rarely get a glimpse of what Muslims truly care about and what their stories look like. We are seen as different and mysterious. Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie stated “The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”

 

EWM wants to work to change the “only story” that is told about Muslims and showcase our beautiful diversity. This will be done through dinners, plays, photographs and videos.  We are hoping to attract a diverse audience to our project but most of all, Eat With Muslims will give Muslim Americans the chance to tell their own stories and reach out to their fellow Americans. We hope this can turn into a movement that allows people to come together, think critically, and have courageous conversations.
