Story

You don’t need a plane ticket to taste truly authentic and delicious dishes from Central and South America. 

Reserve your meal today!!

Sabor Montclair celebrates the unique “sabor” that our Latinx community members bring to Montclair. Our familias have helped design this event which features tasty take-out meals that highlight their culture and family stories. Tickets can be purchased for October 29th. Your ticket for dinner includes a tasting platter for one, but most importantly, it is a donation to support all of MFEE’s programming and to help fund Navegadores Escolares.

In just one year, MFEE’s Navegadores Escolares program has expanded to support 60 families and over 105 Montclair Public School students – and it continues to grow quickly!  Until now, families and students have been navigating our schools and community on their own. In systems that operate almost exclusively in English, non-English-speaking parents in Montclair face many barriers to meaningfully engaging and supporting their children. Students face barriers to accessing the education and fundamental resources to which they are entitled.

While the district is intent on addressing the needs of our rapidly growing population of multilingual learners, institutional change takes time, and our children need support now.

That’s where Navegadores come in. MFEE continues to recruit and train Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking community members and matches them to provide one-on-one holistic support to each familia. Navegadores help with everything from registering students in school to helping parents navigate the online portal, to attending meetings with teachers and counselors, to connecting parents to health, housing and food resources. They also connect students to community programs that nurture their talent for art and sports. MFEE provides regular community-building gatherings and workshops to nurture self-advocacy among las familias.

With the continued growth of Navegadores Escolares, MFEE recognized that Montclair's multilingual students needed additional support after school. In the past year, MFEE launched Entrenadores Escolares to support middle and high schoolers and Oruguitas to support students in K-5th grade. Both programs provide much-need social connection, academic support, and educational enrichment.  These programs could not run without the generous volunteer efforts of Montclair High School students and Montclair residents.



You can support this work, and learn more about Montclair’s newest community members through their amazing food. Reserve your meal today! Each meal will come with a story about the meal you're eating and the family who shared their recipe from home, as well as the recipe for the meal.

We sold out last year!

Special thanks to Partners for Health Foundation for supporting this work.
