Big thanks to Tilda Basmati Rice's great crew for helping out in the kitchen.

Is your company looking for a good cause to contribute to? Can you and your coworkers get behind our mission of serving nourishing, hot food to displaced people?

Sponsored sports events, company parties, fundraising dinners, food / hamper collections, volunteer trips to Calais/RCK London and other company-wide fundraising activities are a great way to satisfy corporate responsibility requirements, boost public relations and provide your employees/teammates with a truly gratifying experience.

Thinking of doing corporate fundraising for Refugee Community Kitchen? Contact us today!

Sara Pascoe, Aisling Bea & The Guilty Feminist Podcast came to Calais!

Massive thanks to Aisling Bea and Sara Pascoe for telling the world about Refugee Community Kitchen on the The Guilty Feminist Podcast!

While the entire episode is amazing, if you scroll to 1:15 you can hear them talk about their experience at Refugee Community Kitchen.

Some of our favorite quotes include:

"They make gorgeous, wonderful food every single day. And it's the best disco I've ever been to, the vibe is great. There's a huge amount of energy...If you think you're too busy, if you go for a day, you'll be a pair of extra hands and an influx of energy."

There are so many words, 'refugee, migrant, immigrant' that make people faceless, they're dehumanized and the point of Refugee Community Kitchen isn't just to provide food so that people don't die, it's giving them some human interaction....

There's a sort of feeling of fear in the world where everything's so overwhelming, I'd rather take a nap and hide. We have to make a decision as humans and go, "I don't know what to do but today [to fix the world] I'm going to give you a hot meal and I'm not going to give up being a human and I'm not going to stop seeing you as a human... If you go out and you volunteer, the decision is 'today I'm going to go out and be human and I'm going to look at you in the eyes, we are both just humans trying to get through the day and there's no bigger solution than that." - Aisling Bea

Give it a listen!

Please support Refugee Community Kitchen during Ramadan!

We are doing our best to support people who are observing Ramadan while living rough in Calais and Dunkirk by distributing fresh fruit, dates, flapjacks and boiled eggs (on top of 1000-1200 hot meals day)!

Each pack only costs £.80 and will hopefully make someone's Ramadan a little brighter, please share & donate what you can!
