Today, two conversations about the power of food to unite people.

Kwame Onwauchi, executive chef of the Afro-Carribean restaurant Kith and Kin in Washington DC, tells us about growing up in the Bronx and Nigeria, the dishes he grew up with, and his favorite snack. Onwauchi will be at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum on August 8th. Details here.

Then, the Market at Montebello aims to build community in Northeast Baltimore with healthy food vendors, music, cooking demos, and lakeside yoga. Founder Nicole Foster says the market, which runs the third Saturday of each month, is bringing neighbors together. And Kerry Leidquist, studio manager at Bikram Yoga Wellness Works, describes the benefits of outdoor yoga.

The next market is Saturday, August 24th. Learn more about Foster's vegan ice cream company, Cajou, here.
