Doors Open at  5:00 pm; Program at 5:30

First Congregational United Church of Christ  4515 SW Hills Road, Corvallis

The Corvallis Sister Cities Association-Gondar Council (CSCA-G) is happy to host a special  dinner, and evening known as “A Taste of Ethiopia: Food, Culture, and People.”  The Ethiopian culture and food are shared with guests who are welcomed with an Ethiopian shoulder-to-shoulder greeting and invited to enjoy the food, costumes, pictures, and information about the lives of Ethiopians both in their country and within the United States of America.

​ This year’s dinner will consist of the following dishes:Tikel Gomen (Cabbage dish), Misir Wot (Red lentil dish), Kik Alicia Wot (Yellow split pea dish), Doro Wot (Chicken dish), Salata (Ethiopian salad), and Teff Injera (Traditional Gluten Free Ethiopian bread), and prepared by our talented Ethiopian chef, Eleni Woldeyes (below).

In addition to the delicious meal, a short presentation will be made by Ellenore Angelidis, director of Open Hearts, Big Dreams describing the work of many bilingual readers that are being distributed across Ethiopian schools and communities. In addition, tickets will be sold for a number of items.  Several other partnering agencies and organizations will provide displays and information about their work in Ethiopia.

Funds raised from these dinners support on-going educational and water related projects between our sister city, Gondar, and Corvallis.

We especially thank the many volunteers who help organize this event and students from Corvallis’ local schools and Oregon State University.  We also thank  our local sponsors and First Congregational United Church of Christ for their use of their kitchen and hall for this event.

We sincerely appreciate the tremendous support of our community and interest in this cultural dinner and projects being sponsored in our sister city, Gondar, Ethiopia.  Please contact us if you’d like to join and share in this continuous exchange of ideas, expertise, and cultural experiences.
