Our workshop curriculum, Food Smarts, and are now on the Approved Curriculum list for SNAP-Ed in California. This means that any organizations running classes under this funding stream can use our innovative curriculum to inspire more people to make healthy changes in their lives. Please email us if you’d like more information about how to integrate Food Smarts or into your program.

We feasted, played the drums, and “guessed that spice” with over 100 community members at our San Diego event celebrating the completion of Around the World at the Farmer's Market: Recipes from San Diego’s African and Middle Eastern Community Cooks. Thanks to the community cooks and our friends at UCSD Center for Community Health, United Women of East Africa Support Team, and International Rescue Committee in San Diego! We got some press too! All of the recipes can be found here on

Berbere & Brews was our San Francisco celebration of Around the World at the Farmer’s Market. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to raise awareness of our work at Leah’s Pantry; we shared delicious food from the cookbook along with beer pairings with old and new friends.

Do you enjoy sharing meals with friends at your home? Do you want to help advance Leah’s Pantry’s mission to promote healthier lives in underserved communities? If yes, consider hosting a cooking party! It’s a fun and easy way to build community through food and raise awareness for Leah’s Pantry. Visit our cooking party page for more information and contact Danielle Boulé with any questions.
