Harrisonburg International Food GuideEarlier this spring, we generated a document called the "Harrisonburg, VA International Food Guide," which contains all the known restaurants, grocery stores, and food trucks run by members of our immigrant populations within the Harrisonburg city limits. This document was a blast to create. Friends, it is 8 pages long! It was created to be as comprehensive a list as possible, though we know there are others out there producing and sharing amazing cultural food within their neighborhoods and communities. Please click the blue button below and download a version of our list and see for yourself all of the amazing cuisine options within our town. Harrisonburg is a pretty unique place.

NewBridges Legal FundThrough the United Way, NewBridges has started a legal fund to help connect immigrants in this area with legal support. Many in this community are in need of legal support but the costs of services are often too high. The NewBridges legal fund serves not only to connect immigrants with legal resources but support families and individuals financially. We are a very small operation and need all the support we can get.
If you would like to donate to the NewBridges legal fund, please follow this link to the Community Foundation's website and choose to donate to the NewBridges Legal Fund. Also, check out our flyer. Thank you!
Every donation counts!Though we brought in a truly amazing amount in gifts this Taste of the World, we will still be actively fundraising throughout the rest of this year. NewBridges is a growing organization and we have a number of dreams for our work in this community. We so appreciate all donations and take fundraising very seriously. If you were not able to attend Taste of the World 2017, but would still like to show your support or it you would otherwise like to support immigrants in this community, please make a donation to NewBridges!
