Location: United Methodist Church | 523 Main St., Woburn, MA


The goal of #WoburnUnites Through Cultural Connections is to build ties between Woburn’s longtime residents and the newer immigrant community using food and conversation as a basis for people to learn about the different cultures represented throughout the community.
The project will start with a Cultural Connections Dinner the evening of Tuesday, October 16. To encourage cross-cultural learning and to welcome newcomers, there will be 50 seats available to recent immigrants and other newcomers (contact Elaine Dougherty at the International Learning Center | 781-935-6499 | edougherty@ymcaboston.org to register) and 50 seats to residents of Woburn who have been here longer. Attendees will sit at tables arranged to ensure they have a chance to talk to people they don’t know. Dinner will be provided by local caterers and restaurants to reflect a variety of ethnic foods.
This is a FREE event.

Please note: we are unable to make accommodations for food allergies at this time.

We mentioned that this was a project, and the Cultural Connections Dinner is the first part. Keep an eye out for three smaller Community Connections Supper Clubs to be held throughout the winter and spring. These Supper Clubs will continue to bring together longtime residents of Woburn and those who consider themselves newcomers in efforts of promoting learning and the creation of cross cultural connections locally. Each Supper Club will focus on a particular ethnic cuisine, drawing upon cultures that are represented in Woburn. Guests will have an opportunity to help prepare parts of the meal as a way to learn more about the culture.
