Help Fund Kitchen In Calais

Since the beginning of September 2015, Sofinee Harun and her family from Seaham have developed a food distribution system in the middle of the Calais Jungle which by December 2015 has now grown to feed more 1,000 people a day with a cooked meal.

On the menu for 22 February was Thai Red Curry cooked by the Malaysian kitchen volunteers, long term helpers who have been trained in the science of mass catering and food hygiene.

Thanks for all your donation as without that we not able to feed! Keep sending us whatever you can. But most importantly your cash donation will enable us to get meat and gas refill.

Keep us in your heart and mind. 😍😍😍😍😍😍

Even just £10 a month will keep us going and keep feeding people in need.


Please send money rather than goods, unless you have set up a special prior arrangement to supply large quantities. Money will be used to buy fresh food  from suppliers in France, saving transport costs, and that way the Kitchen can plan menus and organise supplies in advance.

Occasionally Sofinee will issue lists of foods wanted in bulk. Follow Kitchen in Calais on Facebook if you are a food wholesaler or supplier and can donate large quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables. Recently the Halal Newcastle shop in the West End supplied a large amount of Arabic foods and we are proud to support them in return by shopping there whenever we can.

Massive efforts are always needed to keep this Kitchen going.

If you can do nothing else to support destitute refugees stuck in appalling circumstances in the winter’s cold and wet, right in the heart of Europe and on our very doorstep, please send money for hot meals, properly cooked.

You know it makes sense.
