Welcome New Refugees - Help Us Fill Our Racks with Warm Winter Outerwear or Donate Warm Winter Boots
Winter is coming and it is cold in Vermont! Help us fill our racks and shelves with warm winter jackets and coats and boots in all shapes, sizes and colors with an emphasis on warm so new arrivals go into winter with the warm outerwear they need.
New and gently used clean clothing accepted. "Cold" hard cash works well too so we can take advantage of "great deals".

A Mosaic of Flavors Cooking Class: Eritrean Injera, Yemesser Watt and Gomen; Tuesday, November 10, 5:30-7:30PM
In November, we will be preparing two traditional dishes popular in Eritrea and Ethiopia. We will learn to make Yemesser Watt, a spicy lentil sauce made with onions, garlic and the East African spice berbere, as well Gomen, a slow-cooked kale dish seasoned with tomato, garlic and jalapeno. We will also sample Injera, the teff and barley flatbread traditionally served with these dishes, and hear how Injera is made. Mulu Tewelde came to Vermont from Eritrea in 2006 and enjoys sharing her knowledge and love of Eritrean and Ethiopian cooking. Together with her friend Alganesh Michael, Mulu cooks for Ethiopian Night at ArtsRiot one a month and caters for private events.
Mosaic of Flavors is collaboration with City Market and the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program. Classes cost $5, for City Market Co-op members and $10 for non-members.
