BIPOC Foodways Table


Introducing BIPOC Foodways Table, by @meccabos & @the_sioux_chef 🤎✨

Mecca Bos has been covering BIPOC food stories for more than 20 years. These experiences have been enriching, beautiful, & surprising, & Mecca is honored to have moved through these spaces for so long.

As Mecca has interviewed food people, told their stories, & cooked & eaten with them, something has started to emerge. Not everyone has a platform to tell their food story—a restaurant, a food truck, a cookbook deal—as these things are not accessible to most of us.

Yet, everyone does indeed have a food story, & this is where BIPOC Foodways Table comes in.

In 2023, we will launch space to stage dinners with community members from our many BIPOC circles. We will identify people who have a food story to tell—whether a dish from their background, culture, or community—to share, uplift, & preserve. Mecca & Sean will help create & curate the meal, & the entire experience will be documented in print, audio, photos & video. This documentation will serve as a gift both to the subject, as well as to the entire community.

As an incentive for your continued support, we will be inviting two of Mecca’s Patreon supporters (selected randomly) to the first dinner, hosted in the home of Mecca & Sean in January of 2023. If you’re interested in eating at the BIPOC Foodways Table, be sure to subscribe to Mecca’s Patreon (link in bio).

If you like the idea of BIPOC Foodways Table, please consider sharing this post with a friend. Your financial support continues to be a valuable way for Mecca to continue this work without having a steady source of income to create projects that push food culture forward in the Twin Cities. 

We hope YOU will be joining our table next year! More information coming soon (as well as a social media giveaway—stay tuned!). As always, thank you for your continued support.
