Liwetan-In-A-Box: a one-of-a-kind, delicious cultural experience!
It's Round Two folks! The Philadelphia Folklore Project's Liwetan-In-A-Box is heading back to your door. Due to high demand, we are including delivery to NYC/North New Jersey, and the Washington, D.C. metro area. Your order must be placed by Saturday, July 24.
We invite community members to support Philadelphia's unique folk cultural life, immigrant communities, and informal economies through a one-of-a-kind, delicious cultural experience that can be enjoyed safely from home.
Liwetan-In-A-Box is a takeout version of the Folklore Project’s iconic Liwetan Feast dinners. Each boxed dinner serves 2-3 people and includes contactless delivery. Chicken & Fish or Vegetarian options are available, and each box comes in a PFP custom reusable shopping bag with reheating instructions and a fun menu magnet.
All proceeds will support PFP’s work, harnessing traditional arts and community-based knowledge in service of social change, as well as Indonesian community vendors who regularly partner with the organization and are suffering a loss of income due to COVID-19.
About The Liwetan Feast
Liwetan is a tradition from East Java, Indonesia, which serves to mark special rituals and rites of passage. Typically, friends and families gather to enjoy a selection of dishses served on banana leaves, which enhances the aroma and aesthetic of the food. The public is invited to experience this communal feast from home while learning more about Indonesian traditions through food that will be provided by local caterer, Pecel Ndeso.
