This interfaith Peace Meal is a chance to socialise and enjoy good food in the company of neighbours.
The Peace Meal aims to build bridges between people who might not normally have an opportunity to meet each other, and to replace the fear of the unknown with increased familiarity and a sense of the richness that diversity can bring. This interfaith community Peace Meal gives people a chance to socialise, enjoy good food in the company of their neighbours and discuss ways in which they and their faith communities could build stronger connections with each other.
As part of the meal, there will be a screening of Ruth & Safiya, a short film about friendship in unlikely spaces, challenging stereotypes and the power of community. It’s filmed on location in Skipton and set in an allotment. Ruth, a local pensioner, meets Syrian refugee, Safiya and proves that the power of earth and nature can build relationships that transcend age, race and nationality.
