Join performer, writer & director Sabrina Richmond as we connect through celebrating and sharing stories linked to our food heritage.

What to expect

A few years ago, Sabrina found herself hungering for foods she enjoyed in childhood. She was oceans away from where she grew up and lonely. As Sabrina cooked these foods, she began to feel more whole as a vault of her heritage unlocked reminding herself that she is somebody.

A by-product was that when she spoke about this connection with others about this, they found common ground as food and emotional memory are universal. What better way to see each other than through a universal need to nourish the body. Let’s remember and share our stories.

We warmly welcome all members of migrant and refugee communities, and British natives of any ethnicity interested in sharing in this event.
