International Pop-Up Egyptian Dinner
November 4
While many restaurants now offer takeout and curbside meals, caterers, who rely on events to generate business, have been especially hard-hit by the shutdowns of COVID-19. So, we at the International Institute of St. Louis have put our heads together to figure out how to help our immigrant and refugee caterers.
Introducing…. International Pop-Up Dinners, a physically-distanced version of our popular Wednesday lunches. The pop-ups will take place on Wednesdays, increasing in frequency as business builds. Order online and then stop on by IISTL to pick up a mouth-watering meal – and help support one of the Institute’s catering clients at the same time.
