We need you!

Once again, we've seen a inhumane and cruel eviction carried out in Calais. Heavily armed police forced refugees, including minors, onto buses with out any information or communication.

After providing no safe or warm spaces throughout the brutal winter , this week's eviction clearly has nothing to do with compassion or human rights.

Conditions are horrific and showing solidarity through this inhumane situation is immensely challenging.

We need your help now more than ever so please spread the word, follow us on social media and donate what you can. 

FEBRUARY 2019 GROUND UPDATE: 

 
 

Here's a ground update from one of our incredible volunteers working in Calais. We're currently serving around 1200 portions of food a day to displaced people in Calais and Dunkirk. Plus an extra 1000 meals every Thursday in Brussels.

WE REALLY NEED VOLUNTEERS! So please join us if you have some spare time! Send an email to refugeecommunitykitchen@gmail.com to see how you can get involved.

Please spread the word & donate what you can!

Scotch Bonnet Chilli Sauce

This Scotch Bonnet chilli sauce brings much joy and banter around the condiment table, bringing much familiarity and cheer to all pallets. We affectionately call it 'Ya Ya' sauce. This swirling batch is an 150lt and should last a month or so. The flakey buttery paratha was also very very well received, a welcome addition to scoop up the Afghan beans with !

At Refugee Community Kitchen we take great pleasure in bringing some joy to our offerings, as well as our main stay menu of Curry, Rice and salad we always make items for the Condiment Table, which people help themselves to, the table often holds hot tea, water, dips, sauces, ground spices, fresh herbs, chopped lemon and onions.

Wishing you all joy, good food and happiness xxx ✨♥️✨

Eviction

Refugee Community Kitchen and our awesome sister orgs. continue to dig deep to help people, people who are not only displaced and far from home but who are being tortured with non-sensical acts of disruption by our governments.

In the last few days, hundreds of people, including many families, unattended minors and hundreds of young men have-with no notice or information- been rounded up and loaded by force into coaches and driven away, away from the small communities they rely on for survival.
Incredibly, those coaches then drove round in circles, for the whole day only to come back to Dunkirk to dump them in the same place they took them from.

We understand the difficulties the local authority have with no government support but this behaviour resembles old school fascist actions designed only with the intention being of breaking people's moral.

Today the people are not broken. 
Today they are not abandoned.

We continue to come together, to pool our energy and resources and will carry on supporting these people and hundreds of others with good food love, humanity, fairness today and tomorrow and there on after!

Big thank you for all the love and support, especially to all the volunteers on the ground for adapting, chopping, cooking and providing unwavering service through tough times. 
We salute you ❤️🙏❤️

Thank you Bean :)
