The NVC and the NVC Foundation are nonprofit organizations that depend on volunteers to help with their programming needs and the everyday business of maintaining our facilities.

This year’s event was held on April 1, 2023, and was hosted by Terry Takeuchi of “Terry’s Kitchen” in Bellevue.
The Nisei Lunch program was once again pleased that Jim Shinbo agreed to prepare the meal for our April gathering. I thought the menu selection for April was truly unique and we hope to do more of this type of menu in the future. Jim’s experiences as a professional chef and his creativity are apparent in his menu selections.
