Entrepreneurial Projects: Global Women Catering
One entrepreneurial initiative supported by Flourishing Foundation is a refugee-immigrant women’s catering crew who call themselves Global Women Catering. More than a dozen women from Eritrea, Afghanistan, Syria, Tajikistan, and Ethiopia, all of whom love to prepare their national dishes and more, joined forces to become Global Women Catering.
During 2019, Global Women Catering catered three large events: a fundraising event for a local settlement agency that catered lunch to 140 people, an art and music gala that catered dinner to 100 people, and a National Seniors Day celebration that catered lunch to more than 500 individuals.
Global Women Catering is becoming very well known in the Metro-Vancouver market and is available for catering any size event.
The women who initiated this adventure are passionate about cooking and sharing their cultural cuisines, and passionate about celebrating their multicultural menu. They have inspired us and everyone who has enjoyed their cooking, their hospitality, and their joy.

for Your Event
We were the same; we want the same things for our children, for our families, ourselves. Because of the work of our group we were introduced to the public as women, as people, not as clients. I feel like if we want something, if we want anything, we can do it. We feel we can do these things now.
All the time, it was my wish to do something for the others, and we did it. I cannot find the words. I feel my confidence is so big. I feel like I am better prepared to help other people. I feel like I can do it now. I have a job now, my children are in school, we have each other, we do not feel alone. I feel hopeful. I am smiling. I am laughing. I still am worried about my family, but I am smiling.”
