Wayside is honored to support the work of In Her Presence and proud to be the recent recipients of a sponsorship award. Members of the Wayside staff got to join dedicated participants, inspiring volunteers and other sponsors at the end of the year celebration and recognition ceremony. In Her Presence brings together immigrant women with different cultures across the community and organizes them around education so that the can better express themselves and advocate for themselves. A primary component of the group is creating a community of participants and volunteer sto help grow women's collective empowerment. Wayside has been supporting this amazing initiative by providing food for their weekly Conversational English Group meetings through our Collective Catering Program, which allows us to provide food for community building events that wouldn't be able to provide food on their own. This is an amazing example of how the sensory experience of sharing food together transcends language and creates vibrant and supportive communities.
