In 1935, in direct response to economic hardships faced by the organization during its early years, community members decided to help raise money by making and selling tamales. Since its inception, the Tamale Dinner has become a cultural tradition attracting hundreds from across the Valley of the Sun. Proceeds support Friendly House’s transformational mission of promoting success and independence to those we serve.
