Appetite for Humanity welcomes and supports refugees, asylees, and immigrants through the uniting power of food and food culture. From caterers to cafés to cooking classes and beyond, wonderful organizations around the world are working hard to do this in many meaningful ways. So we’ve created an online directory of those initiatives, and we’re working on a free library of resources that individuals or groups can use to share information, learn from one another, and jump in and help.
We’re building a free, online directory of organizations that welcome and support refugees, asylees, and immigrants through food.
Our hope is that this list will serve as a
- Tool for travelers, foodies, and volunteers seeking to learn, help, and serve
- Resource for like-minded initiatives to discover and learn from one another
- Source of inspiration and education that leads to greater support for refugees, asylees, immigrants, and those who hope to help them
Collecting this list has been a labor of love, and we’re thrilled to share it with you as it evolves. Click here to dig in.
If you know of an initiative that we may want to include, please let us know.
Austin-Afghan Food Welcome
When refugees arrive in the U.S., it’s essential for their comfort and sustenance that they have access to the unique ingredients and cooking supplies for making the foods of their homeland.
To support Afghan refugees arriving in the US, we’re currently
- Sourcing, shopping for, and delivering culturally specific groceries and kitchen equipment to refugees in and around Austin, Texas
- Documenting our process and supply lists, to help others do the same in cities everywhere
