Experience Community and Culture through Bridge

Launched by Mustafa Nuur, Bridge is a platform giving refugee families an opportunity to showcase their cultures through food and events. Global cultures provide local connections through private dining experiences hosted in different locations. Monthly events held at Upohar highlight foods from around the world. 


Cultural dining experiences take place in a refugee home, and feature ethnic food, conversation and learning about the hosts’ home country. Upcoming Arts and Culture events include a Middle Eastern Cooking Class and Stroopie Love, where participants will learn how to make Stroopie waffles and about a refugee Stroopie maker.


“As former refugee myself, I needed to provide a platform to showcase our culture and cuisine to the community,” shares Nuur. “Right now, we have nine families from nine different countries offering a glimpse into their culture and story.”


Location: Upohar, 798 New Holland Ave., Lancaster. For more information, to view the event calendar and to register for events, visit
