The Refugee Response 

THE EVENT.  Please join us on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 for a summer evening at our nation’s largest urban farm, the Ohio City Farm, overlooking our lakefront city skyline. Enjoy exciting culinary experiences from Cleveland’s premiere chefs using produce from the farm, and traditional music, story sharing and dance from members of the refugee community. You will also be able to see the empowering impact of the Refugee Response in sharp relief as we aid refugee families moving from hardship to home.

CREATING IMPACT.  Your attendance will provide direct support to refugee student enrolled in our Home Tutoring Program, adult farm trainees in our Refugee Employment through Agriculture Program (REAP),  others who receive assistance daily through our support services. Our focus on education and employment training empowers families to make Cleveland their new home, assists them in finding sustainable outside employment and becoming engaged citizens in our community.

~ FARM CHIC ~  An important question for any event is "what should one wear?" This year the concept of REAP the Benefit is "Farm Chic," meaning a good sense of style, just the right amount of flair and footwear fit for a farm. Stay tuned to our social media pages for tips and updates on farm chic.
