On October 26th, MALA partnered with Eat OffBeat and Whole Foods Manhattan to provide a delectable 4 course meal prepared by Chef Nasrin from Iran. Eat OffBeat is a social enterprise dedicated to transforming the lives of refugees resettled in NYC by providing them an opportunity to prepare and serve authentic and home-style foods from their culture to the public.
