YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City 2012
13 Apr 2012
For one night only, please join us in Somerville as ten immigrant-owned and -operated restaurants come together, offering tastings of their cuisine for the third annual YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City celebration and fundraiser! The event is a benefit for The Welcome Project, a local organization that works to strengthen the voices of immigrant youth and adults in Somerville. The 2012 YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City celebration will feature live entertainment, silent auction and international tastes from around Somerville. Co-sponsored by the City of Somerville's Shape Up Initiative and with an appearance by Mayor Curtatone, YUM is a truly local celebration. Get tickets and more information at, "Like" us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter @yumsomerville!
I am writing to invite you to the 2012 YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City on April 25 at Somerville's Arts at the Armory. You'll find 10 of Somerville's tastiest immigrant-run restaurants offering samplings of food from Turkey, Ethiopia, Mexico, Thailand, Brazil, the Mediterranean, Italy, India and Nepal! The celebration is a benefit for The Welcome Project, which works to build the power and strengthen the voices of immigrant youth and adults in Somerville. It takes place from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.

Featuring live entertainment, food from the participating restaurants, a silent auction and an appearance from our own Mayor Joseph Curtatone, YUM promotes our culturally-rich community. This year we have partnered with Shape Up Somerville -- YUM Restaurants will also be offering samples of healthier options of cuisines from all over the world.

For more information and to purchase your tickets, visit Advance tickets are only $35. Individual sponsorships start at only $100. A great deal and a great way to support our work in the community.

There will also be a program book where you can place an ad or a message which will be seen by more than 250 people. Visit for more information on program book and sponsorships.
