Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement – a living classroom for our students!

Honors students help in the Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement kitchen.

Honors students in HNR 340/360 “Folk Arts, Festival and Public Display”  had a cultural history lesson while they learned to cook traditional foods with refugees from Burma, DR Congo and Somalia at the Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement here in Syracuse. Not only did they chop, slice and dice the ingredients but after their shared meal, they also washed all the dishes, pots and pans–while singing a traditional Congolese song with new neighbors, Kiza and Makere.
