Co-hosted by WANDA: Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture and Cuisine Noir Magazine, we invite you to join the Sisterhood Supper Series celebrating local women food leaders with our specia guest Toni Tipton-Martin, James Beard Award Winning Author of "Jemima Code" and first African American and former LA Times Food Editor.

The series is curated by WANDA to curate conversations on culture and cuisine and create a community of women at the table. Bring a family recipe to share a story with the group at the supper.

RSVP your seat at and make a donation to WANDA, a 501c3 nonprofit based in DC and Nigeria focused on inspiring a new generation of women and girls as food sheroes in our communities.

We are thankful to our restaurant hosts:

Based in Mount Rainier, Bird Kitchen + Cocktails is owned and operated by recent transplants from Atlanta, Lenny and Martine Robinson.They opened a neighborhood eatery close to home, helping to fill a void in the Mount Ranier area.

"Bird is a reflection of everything we want an eatery to be: casual, warm and friendly. Eating healthy, simple and straightforward food, good music and drinks are our goals to sucess. Pomp and cicumstance, unnecessary."
