After last month’s evictions of the Calais camp, Refugee Community Kitchen has carried on feeding the 1200 residents of the Grande Synthe Camp in Dunkirk every day.
We are also coordinating, with the help of Calais Kitchens, the supply of fresh and dry food for the communal kitchens in Grande Synthe (run by SWK) that provide breakfast and dinner everyday as well as the stocking of the free shops that provide everything needed for the residents to cook for themselves in the communal rocket-stove powered kitchens.
We are working closely with the Calais Woodyard to supply the wood needed there and with L’Auberge des Migrants, the warehouse in Calais, to provide clothes, toiletries and other essential items.
Meanwhile RCK is currently customising a professional food truck in order to cook and deliver up to 3000 meals a day to the displaced peoples in Northern France (including Paris), Italy, Greece and wherever else warm, nourishing food is needed.
As you can imagine, feeding and servicing these numbers every day needs great resources of money, volunteers, food and wood donations.
Your help is essential to us being able to carry on our work in Calais and the rest of Europe, and we thank you for your continued and much needed support.
