Sweet Sweet Syria

“Syrian Refugees Brought One Thing With Them: A Cookie Mold. Now, It’s The Foundation Of A Business”

I spent Saturday morning volunteering with Urban Fresh, Historic West Side Gardens and other Atlanta community volunteers. We were joined by Syrian families, one of whom also made an amazing lunch for us! The same family will soon be starting a dessert business (Sweet Sweet Syria) and I’ll share the info when everything is firmed up. It’s so great to see that they’re already getting coverage. Check out this Forbes article about their business.
