We’re excited to invite you to participate in a fun, free, family-friendy online class for our members. Participants will learn to make Onigiri, Japanese rice balls!

Participants will receive a special Onigiri Action kit with all the necessary authentic Japanese ingredients, including Japanese rice, tuna, Kewpie mayonnaise, special seasoning packets, Onigiri tools, and more!  

After a short presentation about Onigiri, participants will cook together with authentic Japanese ingredients led by a knowledgeable instructor from TABLE FOR TWO. You will also learn about "Onigiri Action", a unique campaign to make a difference by using onigiri. It promises to be a fun program for all ages, and we invite families to participate together! (Younger participants will need the help of their parents or an adult to keep the pace of the class).  

*We will share a link to order Onigiri Action kit with a discount code, class preparation info, a link to a waiver form, Zoom info, and a link to a feedback survey after you complete the registration. 

*Onigiri action kit must be ordered by February 4th in order to get delivered by the day of the workshop. 


Onigiri, the Japanese rice ball, is a beloved comfort food widely eaten across Japan. It is made from short or medium grain steamed rice molded into a triangular, ball, or cylindrical shape. It is often wrapped with nori (roasted seaweed) and stuffed with a variety of fillings and flavors. It’s a perfect snack that is tasty, healthy, and easy to make! 

[Onigiri Action] 

Onigiri Action (https://usa.tablefor2.org/onigiri-action) is an annual social good campaign organized by TFT. When photos of onigiri are posted on the campaign website or social media with #OnigiriAction, five school meals are donated to children in need around the world. TFT holds "Onigiri Action" to coincide with World Food Day with a goal to deliver 1 million meals to children every year. TFT started in Japan and features onigiri, which celebrates rice, one of Japan's major agricultural products and highlights the tradition of making onigiri for loved ones. Enjoy your onigiri, and join us to help in Onigiri Action! 


TABLE FOR TWO USA (https://usa.tablefor2.org/), is a non-profit organization, that addresses issues of hunger and health issues related to unhealthy eating. As a non-profit organization which started in Japan and is expanding globally, TFT has started the innovative programs: “Onigiri Action”, “Wa-Shokuiku-Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese! - “and “#EdamameChamp” featuring Japanese food culture. More info: https://usa.tablefor2.org/
