2019 Onigiri Making Workshop [Sun, 11/17]

Participants from the 2018 Onigiri Workshop!

For the second year in a row, JETAANY, JAA, and the Consulate will be joining in a pre-Thanksgiving community volunteer effort on November 17th to make onigiri, or riceballs, for a good cause that will benefit people of all ages.

We’ll be participating in an “Onigiri Action” event started by the Japanese nonprofit, Table for Two, in which each social media posting of our onigiri will provide 5 school meals to children in need in the U.S. and East Africa (this is funded by Japanese corporations). More info HERE

Additionally, this year, we will be able to donate the onigiri to Japanese seniors at Isabella House, an independent living center for elders in Inwood.

Please join us!
