Each platter is handmade, including lovingly crafted "carrot flowers" locally sourced from San Diego farmers.

By purchasing a Project CHOP party platter, you can feel great eating healthy, supporting local farmers and helping refugee women on the road to economic self-sufficiency. Each Project CHOP party platter comes with a unique, hand-crafted dip that combines the rich, ethnic flavors of refugee cultures with locally-grown fruits and vegetables from San Diego farms. 

Your purchase of a Project CHOP party platter helps some of IRC’s most vulnerable refugee clients gain critical employment skills. 100% of Project CHOP sales goes to operating costs so that IRC will not be reliant on grants to sustain the program in the future.
