Last May 4, NPR published an opinion piece about the time a Filipino-Egyptian-American intern sent a email invite to Filipinos working at the news outlet to share his love for Filipino food.

The Filipino potluck became a weekly affair. It would be called it Kaibigan Klub. Kaibigan is Tagalog for friend. The intern then admitted to not having reached out to his fellow Filipinos at the workplace for camaraderie and companionship until recently.

This is inspiring. What would be even better is these Filipino Americans in companies around the United States did the same weekly Filipino potluck -- and with their non-Filipino colleagues as well.
