Glendale Tech on Tap Free Film Screening & Gathering – May 22, 2019

 Glendale Tech on Tap in partnership with DishDivvy, will sponsor a screening of the excellent film Soufra at the Glendale Laemmle. Guests will enjoy a Soufra-inspired boxed meal to enjoy during the film, prepared by local DishDivvy HomeCooks.

Soufra follows the unlikely and inspirational story of Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon. Mariam sets out against all odds to change her fate by launching a successful catering company, “Soufra,” eventually expanding it into a food truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee women.
