Our Roots

Welcoming friends and strangers with food.

Food helps us celebrate and appreciate the significance of our diverse traditions, it accompanies all of life’s most significant moments.

Food plays an important role in the social and traditional life of African cultures and their peoples.

Food is central to welcoming friends and strangers into homes and villages. What we eat helps us understand who we are and how we fit into the world.

 Food is the currency for true connection. Connection to self, to others, and to all of life. And yet at the global banquet table, African foods and ingredients, together with the continent’s diverse food traditions, remain underrepresented.
