What is Kitchen on the Run?

Kitchen on the Run is a mobile kitchen in a shipping container. We travel Europe and Germany and organize cooking events for refugees and locals to get to know each other, cook and eat together and share their stories.

This summer we are visiting small German towns that became the new home for at least 500 refugees. For six weeks, several times a week a group of 20 – 25 locals and refugees will share our container kitchen to prepare dinner and eat together.

Join one of our cooking events and #makeTheWorldABetterPlate!

1 Get in touch and tell us if you want to be a host and teach others how to cook your recipe, or a guest and get to know new people and recipes.

2 We will set the date, organise the grocery shopping together with the host and pay for it. Cooking with us is free for all participants.

3 At the cooking event 15-20 refugees and locals will meet at the container to cook and eat together. Stories will be told, new flavours will be tasted, and unique dishes will be created together.

4 Tasty friendships will blossom and more encounters will follow.
