    About this Event

    Kamayan, a Filipino term meaning to eat “with bare hands”, is a colorful and uniquely Filipino feast served family-style on banana leaves. The generous feast is intended to be eaten by hand, without plates and utensils. Sharing a meal using their hands around a communal table, diners get to experience a direct connection to their food and their family and friends, fostering love and kinship on every bite.

    In celebration of community and connection, this event will benefit PAMANA (Philippine-American Association of Madison & Neighboring Areas), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting unity and goodwill, and providing aid and assistance to humanitarian projects. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards PAMANA's scholarship program.

    The event is open to all families. Members and non-members can participate.

    This forum is for parents, grandparents, guardians, caregivers, any adult caring for a child.

    The event is part of the Kapihan Series (Coffee Shop Discussion), an open and honest sharing of our personal experiences on topics that are relevant to PAMANA members and friends. Last year, we have shared Our Migration Story. In April 2019, we focused on Our Love Story and the touches of culture in love, marriage, and other meaningful relationships.  This time, we invite participants to share their experiences as parents/caregivers of a child. We will explore the different challenges we face as parents in a multicultural setting in the hope that we can learn from each other. As the saying goes: “It takes a village to raise a child.”

    We will be serving light refreshments and snacks.

    For planning purposes, please register to attend.
