As an aid worker in Afghanistan for 6 years, Ms. Singleton grew a garden that turned into a once-a-month vegan pop-up dinner.  While hosting Afghans and foreigners she found an opportunity to share stories and build community over the dinner table.  Finding that these meals and stories helped overcome racial, ethnic, cultural and religious differences, she has morphed her experience into the Transformation Table.  Ms. Singleton now hosts intimate community dinners to continue to foster unity and healing in the community after the tragic massacre at Mother Emmanuel.
