With Syria’s four million refugees in the news daily, the need for food relief is stark. The roots of this crisis are deep and stretch back to the second Gulf War, but the time has come for western nations to step forward and address this international drama.

In Southern California, having formed a coalition, The Markaz, Arts Center for the Greater Middle East, will present SOUP FOR SYRIA, FOOD AND ARTS FESTIVAL, on Saturday, October 10th, 5 to 10 pm. Proceeds from the festival will help feed more than 1,000 Syrian refugees, under the auspices of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, and the Karam Foundation—an American nonprofit that has been working in Syria for nearly a decade.

Join us for a delicious dinner in a festive environment, and an evening of live performances on stage with special celebrity guests, at the Pico Union Project! (If you’re unable to attend, you can still support this initiative, see below.)

All profits from the sales of the Soup for Syria cookbook edited by Barbara Massad from Interlink Books will be donated to the UN refugee agency UNHCR to help fund food relief efforts, and 50% of all revenues from this event will be contributed to the Karam Foundation to assist in essential Syrian refugee relief programs.
