Fava Pot and HANDS are coming together to host a flavorful event! Join us at our Shem El Nessim craft sale at Fava Pot.
Shem El Nessim is historic Egyptian holiday that celebrates the arrival of spring. Welcome spring by emersing yourself into the Egyptian culture! Enjoy a delicious meal prepared by the chefs of Fava Pot and shop for handicrafts made at HANDS’ projects in Egypt.
Our products are made by artisans at the Association for the Protection of the Environment (APE), a job skills training program for women living and working in the garbage collectors’ community in Cairo. The handicrafts are made from clean, recycled materials, and proceeds provide increased opportunities for young women in the community.
We hope you, your family, and your friends can celebrate this new season with us! We’ll be at Fava Pot from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., so stop by for lunch or dinner–and a chance to pick up a great Mothers’ Day or graduation gift!
