Born from a citizens’ initiative, the Refugee Food Festival is an annual project allowing restaurant owners to open their kitchens to refugee chefs. The first Refugee Food Festival, founded by the Food Sweet Food charity with the support of the UN Agency for Refugees, took place in Paris in June 2016.
The annual festival aims to accomplish 3 missions:
Perceptions around the welcoming of refugees and refugee status.
The integration of refugee chefs through training and a community of committed chefs and restaurant owners.
Civil society, and get citizens together around the dinner table, a universal place of peace and equality.
