The family describes their tradition:

“The tradition presented here is about the local food in our culture called “githeri” which is a mixture of boiled corn and peas. The preparation of food in our culture is mostly done by the girls and women. Githeri is the staple food in our community and it is easy to prepare.”

Thoughts the family would like to share with students and families around the world:

“Githeri [a Kenyan traditional meal] can be prepared with either dry or green corn as well as any other type of cereal.”
