Bringing people together through food

Culture Kitchen in the Community

 

Culture Kitchen in the Community has been designed to bring people from communities together to experience a culture different or perhaps new to them.  The purpose is for our volunteers to get the opportunity to lead on high profile events and develop many skills through that process, but also importantly to have the chance to express and explain their cultures through food, whilst meeting people from the wider community.  We want to give people from different communities the chance to meet with our volunteers, try their food, ask them questions and hopefully this all creates a shared understanding and respect in communities.  

 

Here is a list of some of the places we have worked in collaboration to deliver Culture Kitchen in the Community.  We have on average  60 people attending the events and feedback from our guests has always been extremely positive.

If you are interested in working with us to put on a Culture Kitchen in the Community where you are, please do get in touch.

 

We do not charge for the events but seek donations from guests to cover the costs of food.

 

We require a hall with space for about 40-80 people to sit and eat and naturally a kitchen with a hob and oven.  We have worked in large professional style kitchens and small functional kitchens and can adapt the project to fit your facilities.
