Sisterhood Supper: Juneteenth Celebration Goes Virtual

DC group delivers meals and self-care bags to the Harriet

Tubman Women's Homeless Shelter in Ward 7


WASHINGTON, DC (June 19, 2021) -- Due to a 60% chance of rain, we have shifted to a Juneteenth virtual celebration to honor and have a soul healing conversation on food freedom with DC's food sheroes who have made an impact in our communities with special performances. We are honoring Dr. Beverley Wheeler of DC Hunger Solutions, Jillian Griffith of Giant Foods, Kim R. Ford of Martha's Table, Samaria King of Dreaming Out Loud, Dominique Hazzard of Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, Mary Blackford of Market 7 and Angela Chester Johnson of Plum Good LLC. The health and safety of the community, guests, and vendors are important to us. We are also kicking off Sisterhood Supper Challenge to host suppers in your home, collect recipes, and start conversations on how to improve food and health in our communities along with the Food Shero Freedom Fund. We also celebrate everyday food sheroes from mamas, aunties, nanas, to sister friends who have made a way out of no way using the power of food to free, heal and transform our communities and homes from farm to health. This Juneteenth is an important historic event as a nationally recognized federal holiday. The event is free and open to the public. So the show must go on in the name of the ancestors. In the spirit of Juneteenth we are donating the Sisterhood Supper, flowers and self-care bags to the Harriet Tubman Women's Homeless Shelter in Ward 7 because we are the food sheroes that our communities need.

Harriet Tubman would want food freedom; and we are serving in the name of her.

RSVP via Zoom: iamwanda.org/sisterhoodsupper.

In health and spirit,

Team WANDA
