Project Feast and Office Nomads are hosting our first Eco-Hour of the summer! Meet the founders of Office Nomads, where many great sustainability projects have begun, and meet Veena Prasad, founder of Veena’s Kitchen and Project Feast.
Established in 2012, Project Feast is a social impact non-profit providing personal cheffing, catering and cooking classes for immigrants and refugees in the Greater Seattle Area. Participants in Project Feast receive training and employment opportunities while sharing their culture’s food with the Seattle community.
Office Nomads provides a space for Seattle’s nomadic workforce to collaborate while enhancing productivity. Located on Capitol Hill, Office Nomad’s members enjoy all the conveniences of having an office and the unexpected benefits of a diverse group of “co-workers”.
Join us on June 13th to meet our hosts and the creative individuals working at Office Nomads along with the fabulous community of NBIS members, board, advisory board members and friends. You’ll also get to sample a Burmese noodle salad prepared by Project Feast among other treats and refreshments. See you on the 13th!
