About the Global Experience Series
Global Experience programs give participants of all ages, interests, and backgrounds the chance to explore how international Kansas City is while answering two key questions – What's your global story? Do you get the chance to share it? Often free or low-cost, Global Experience events range from visits to internationally themed restaurants and other outings to film screenings and discussions on timely global issues. As interesting as the topics and venues are, the best part of Global Experience programs are the hosts and participants who share their diverse knowledge and insights. Won't you join us for this introduction to IRC programming and Kansas City's vibrant international community?


About the Tamale Kitchen
It all started in a church office on Kansas City’s Northeast side. A priest became frustrated that his hard-working, predominantly Hispanic congregation couldn’t find jobs that paid a living wage. He knew something had to change to break this cycle poverty. Soon after The Tamale Kitchen was born.

Today five women turn their love for a cultural tradition into great-tasting tamales that generate revenue, create jobs and provide new opportunities for the next generation. They work with a team of entrepreneurial partners across Kansas City who are committed to making a difference by providing mentorship and help to keep costs low.

They count on people like you who just like to eat darn good tamales … year round!

Every tamale you buy from The Tamale Kitchen helps grow the enterprise and put an end to poverty in a local community. Support the cause. Learn more »
