WASHINGTON, DC - Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture (WANDA) is partnering with Springhill Company, Picture Motion, and Door Dash to host a virtual Sisterhood Supper with Recipe for Change: Amplifying Black Women on Sunday, August 14th at 5:30pm ET.
Recipe for Change is a groundbreaking series produced by LeBron James’ the SpringHill Company for YouTube Originals. Each episode of Recipe for Change centers around the stories of a different community, celebrating their traditions, identity, and experiences and discussing how we can all stand up to hate and racism. "We were thrilled with the opportunity to partner on this much-needed project that's in alignment with our Sisterhood Supper series," says Tambra Raye Stevenson, founder/CEO of WANDA. "Like the media series Recipe for Change, our Sisterhood Supper celebrates the stories of Black women specifically related to food and self-care while building a community for collective action."
"On behalf of Picture Motion and our partners at The SpringHill Company and YouTube Originals, we are thrilled to partner with WANDA to celebrate the stories of Black Women through this series. WANDA's initiatives like Sisterhood Supper are perfectly aligned with the third installment of the series, Recipe for Change: Amplifying Black Women —and its impact campaign!"
“DoorDash's mission to empower local economies means empowering the communities that underpin them,” said Darrell Davis, Public Engagement Manager at DoorDash. “DoorDash is proud to partner with WANDA's Sisterhood Supper and support Black women committed to expanding access to nutritious food in our communities.”
The third episode of this series, Recipe for Change: Amplifying Black Women, celebrates the stories, traditions, identities, and experiences of Black women through three distinct dinners hosted by Mary J. Blige, Saweetie, and Tabitha Brown. Each table brings together powerful women to discuss important and timely topics such as codeswitching, colorism, misconceptions, mental health, and lived experiences. The ladies engage in heartfelt conversations while dining on delicious foods from renowned Chefs, including Kelis, Danielle Saunders, and Tabitha Brown's very own restaurant. The celebration of Black womanhood and the sharing of personal stories makes this a dinner that you don’t want to miss.
