OLIVES ON THE TABLE: Tasting and Talking Organic Fair Trade Food in Palestine


You are cordially invited to an evening of tasting and talking about organic fair trade Palestinian olive oil, olives, za'atar (wild thyme), olive tapenade, sun-dried tomatoes and tahini. Vivien Sansour of Canaan Fair Trade (based in Jenin, Palestine) will present photography and stories from her work with organic fair trade olive farmers in Palestine. Free Palestinian food will also be served.

At the end of the night, we will be giving away a selection of Canaaan Fair Trade products (including bottles of olive oil, olives, za'atar and tahini) to a few lucky participants by lottery.

The event will close with a performance by the Columbia University Dabkeh Troupe.
