Edna's Restaurant - Chicago, Illinois, 2008



volunteers & interns wanted

We’re very serious about promoting the foodways of African Diaspora and need your help. There are so many things to do and only so many hours in the day, and with a whole globe and quite a few languages to cover we need to develop our networks to get it all done. Help us out.

Here are some of the areas where we could use some support:

  • web design
  • research and development
  • translation & language reference (French, Spanish, Portuguese, Kreyòl, Turkish, Arabic to start…)
  • and so much more…

If you are interested in helping Roots Cuisine please contact us at info [at] rootscuisine [dot] org for details.

We’re looking for people who have a keen interest in or knowledge of the African Diaspora and related foodways, culture, and history. We could really use your support.

If you’re interested, ready, and (most importantly) reliable

You can DM or contact on Twitter where you’ll find us at @rootscuisine

    Andrés, That is fabulous! That’s definitely something I’ve been wanting to do from the beginning–translations into Spanish, French, and Portuguese! So this is wonderful. I will contact you via email soon.

    Hi Rachel,

    I am grounded in Southern Foodways, passionate about cooking, and hold a B.A. in Africana Studies. If you still need volunteers, I can possibly help with research and development depending on your needs.
