The refugee crisis in Calais and Dunkirk is presently worse than it’s ever been and help is needed more now than ever. This film is an overview of the present situation and a plea for help.
Since the dismantlement of the Calais Jungle and the fire in Dunkirk, Refugee Community Kitchen is now the only organisation from the UK making food and are currently serving 2500 portions a day.
The refugees continue to arrive, fleeing their uninhabitable homelands – hoping to find some peace and a place to settle. They are living in extremely difficult conditions, they have no services and no safe places. As there are no camps, they are being forced into the woods and wasteland, avoiding the authorities and face continual police harassment.
Every day to cook the food we serve to the residents in the Calais and Dunkirk camps we use every penny you donate as wisely as we can.
We are cooking 2500 meals a day at least, with the numbers rising daily.
The cooks are ploughing through huge amounts of food: 100 kilos of dried beans every day 150 kilos of rice every day 150 kilos of onions every day 10 kilos of garlic every day 80-100 kilos of salad every day 20 litres of sunflower oil every day 10 litres of olive oil every day 5 kilos of salt every day 8 kilos of spices and chilli every day
Plus as much bread and fruit as we can muster to hand out every day, all
lovingly prepared by tireless volunteers.
Without your donations, we can not sustain this output.
Huge gratitude to all of you that are helping every day – without you all this would not be possible – let’s do more!
