    Weʼve raised £430 to Refugee Community Kitchen

    London, UK
    Funded on Monday, 3rd September 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    VERVE is headed to Calais this month to volunteer with Refugee Community Kitchen.

    We are hoping to raise £250 that will go directly to RKC. If we hit our goal ~ funds will be MATCHED by an anonymous compassionate intersectional feminist - bringing our total donation to £500! Please donate if you can... Every little bit helps!

    About Refugee Community Kitchen:

    We have served over 2 million hot, nourishing meals since Dec. 2015.

    Refugee Community Kitchen serves nourishing food to displaced people in the UK and northern France. Entirely volunteer-run and donation-based, we are committed to serving wholesome food with dignity and respect to people in need.

    Food is a human right

    Not only does Refugee Community Kitchen keep people highly nourished but we are also providing a moment in the day where people can gather and connect. Our food distributions recreate a sense of community and provide a safe space for medical and legal services, safeguarding groups and other support.


    By 2015 we'd seen tens of thousands of people forced to leave their homes, risking their lives in search of refuge and safety in the Europe.

    We could no longer stand by as we watched people living in horrid conditions in makeshift camps in Europe, so the four of us- Steve (event organiser), Paula (doula), Sam (chef), Janie (activist)- came together to offer assistance in the form of nourishing meals and access to fresh food daily. We pooled our skills and those of our resourceful friends and set up a communal kitchen to support people living in the Calais refugee camps and beyond.

    Since the 1st of December 2015 Refugee Community Kitchen has served over two million meals. We also serve hot food five nights a week at multiple points in London. We are committed to showing up rain or shine, and doing everything we can to make sure that no one goes hungry.
