We can still celebrate Philadelphia's diverse communities through food-- join us for #GlobalTastesOut on Wednesday, April 22nd!

Started in 2007, Global Tastes is Nationalities Service Center’s most important fundraiser of the year and is an exciting event featuring global entertainment and international cuisine with a delicious food competition. Every year, this gala event raises vital funds that allow immigrants and refugees in the Philadelphia area to continue to benefit from the NSC’s high quality legal, social, education, health and language access services. While this year's Global Tastes event is being reimagined, we invite you to join us on April 22nd to support Philadelphia's immigrant friendly businesses and celebrate the city's tapestry of diverse communities.
