Refugee Food Festival

World Refugee Day Paris

Refugees in cities around the world are invited to take over restaurants for the day. Chefs open their kitchens to give refugees the opportunity to share cuisine from their home countries, to gain valuable experience in managing a kitchen, and help increase acceptance and understanding of refugees.

Food is a universal way of communicating who we are, where we've come from, and what we have to offer those around us. There are few things more central and foundational to our human connectedness than through the act of breaking bread together.

Check out this video, done by TSOS Videographer, Phoebe Wood, and her interview with the Founder of the "Refugee Food Festival" and what the experience was like in a restaurant in Paris.
