Our friends at @refugeecommunitykitchen, who we have worked with in Calais since November 2015, are responsible for purchasing all the food distributed in the free shops in Dunkirk, which enable people to cook for themselves.
They also purchase ingredients for and prepare all the hot food distributed by RCK, Utopia, Auberge and Help Refugees in and around Calais as well as at the hot food points in Dunkirk.
As the number of displaced people in Calais increases so does the number of meals RCK are preparing every day. Those sleeping rough in Calais are mostly teenagers so providing healthy, hearty meals is one way we can try to prevent malnourishment and illness.
If you would like to hold a food collection amongst friends, at work or at school then the team would be incredibly grateful. Here is a list of the needed items.
Please do collect only the items on the list. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange delivery to our Calais warehouse with @laubergedesmigrants where RCK are based.
