Welcome to the Hand-in-Hand Cafe! The November 23rd Event is now sold out! Tickets are available for the January 11th dinner and there will be more dinners listed soon. Thank you so much for your interest!

Hand-in-Hand Cafe is a monthly community dinner at First Parish Church in Lexington. Partnering with First Parish Lexington, LexRAP (Lexington Refugee Assistance Program – has hired refugee women to cook meals inspired by their homelands. Dinners will be both alcohol and nut-free and all meat served will be Halal. There will be a vegetarian option at each meal. At the dinner, there will be music and the opportunity to chat with the cooks and learn about their food and culture. We have recently added a “giveaway” surprise gift bag that one lucky person per table wins. In September, this was a falafel tool, spices, some fresh batter, and a recipe!

Upcoming dates are November 23rd (sold out!!) and January 11th. (Originally, we had a date of December 21st but have canceled that event and replaced it with January 11th- sorry for the inconvenience)

There is no dinner scheduled for October because on Sunday, October 27th, LexRAP, our sponsoring organization, is holding it’s second annual dinner fundraiser. Hand-in-Hand cooks will be cooking for the event! We hope you will consider attending this dinner to support LexRAP. To learn more, go to The website will be a link to ticket sales for the fundraiser.

BTW – We will be using compostable plates for all upcoming dinners to do our part for the environment!
