Refugee Community Kitchen

With so many young people and children affected this is a cause close to our hearts.

FairTunes Director Steve Bedlam (Events), Sam Jones (Chef), Paula Gallardo (Doula), Bobbie Greenish (Teacher) and Janie Mac (Activist and Lecturer) are the coordinators of this humanitarian mission. They say:

“We have seen tens of thousands of people forced to leave their homes and risking theirs and their families lives to find refuge with us in the West.

As a result, we are pulling together our skills and those of our resourceful friends, and anyone else drawn to help, to set up a communal kitchen in the Calais refugee camps and other similar camps in Europe.

Our aim is to feed where food is needed, to build where we can build and to give our support to the volunteers on the ground. As winter sets in, we can really help by providing hot nourishing food on a daily basis. At present, many of the camps do not have basic facilities and many are going hungry.”

It is with Happy hearts we received the news that the joint efforts of RCK, Help Refugees, L'Auberge des Migrants, Utopia 56, Salam, Medicins du Monde, and The Legal Shelter have won the appeal to continue with a legitimate and desperately needed static food distribution point which is already feeding upwards of 200 souls. We have seen people arriving in dire need for food and this step in the direction of humanity is welcomed by all but mostly by the refugees.
We continue to provide meals for the lunchtime and night time Maraudes but hopefully the permission to feed refugees from a static point reduces the risks the food ban had created.
We are as always in need of volunteers this is an ongoing call out for help. We need people on the ground, spring is coming the worst of the winter has hopefully passed, come join us for a few days or a few weeks. University students looking for something to do for those 4 months off ? We are here and we would love you to join us in the Kitchen
If you can volunteer please email us at refugeecommunitykitchen@gmail.com
