This week, in honor of the Thanksgiving season and holiday cooking in general, we're revisiting a question we asked our OneLISC crew last year. The responses are inspiring and delicious:
What recipe/food/dining experience brings you and your family comfort? Can you share a memory that is tied to the dish or experience?
Maria Parra Cano and the other members of the Cihuapactli Collective, an Indigenous- and women-run organization in South Phoenix, are growing cultural, spiritual and physical nourishment, literally from the ground up. In recognition of Native American Heritage Month and the Thanksgiving season, we are pleased to share their story.
LISC has named the 2022 winners of the Rubinger Community Fellowship, an annual program that invests in local leaders focused on testing forward-thinking ideas and catalyzing grassroots opportunities in the communities where they live and work. Each of the 10 fellows will spend the next year developing programs and researching strategies to explore areas for growth within their communities.
