“Be My Guest” is an interactive event series that centers around food as an invitation for storytelling, conversation, and making connections

Join Twin Cities PBS for an interactive virtual event that examines how faith traditions and sustainability practices are intertwined.

We examine how two youths of different faiths came together to combat food insecurity in their neighborhood. We learn how one congregation transformed their place of worship into an eco-mosque, and we consider how religion influences our relationship with the environment.

TPT invites you to break bread with your neighbors to explore these questions and more with the help of community storytellers and original media designed to foster empathy and solidarity among our Muslim and non-Muslim communities.


  • Host Hibo Glued, Green Garden Bakery’s D’loveantae Allen & Lammi Ahmed
  • Somali refugee and multimedia artist Ifrah Mansour
  • Imam Makram El-Amin of Masjid An-Nur Mosque

Be My Guest is a multi-course engagement project, combining interactive events that center around food as an invitation for storytelling and short-form media, creating conversation and connection between Muslim and non-Muslim communities across Minnesota.

Join us in making new connections — virtually — and engage in meaningful dialogue with the aim of activating empathy across differences. There is no cost to participate.
