Iskashitaa prevents food waste in Tucson

while empowering UN refugees


Iskashitaa Refugee Network is a grass-roots organization that helps rebuild the lives of United Nations refugees and asylum seekers.  We do this through partnerships within the community and food-based programming. 

Iskashitaa empowers refugees by creating opportunities to use their knowledge and skills from their home countries to help their families become a part of the Tucson community.
