A successful partnership that started in 2016 with Charlie Rayner of Inveresk Tavern, the Community Kitchen project has expanded in 2017 to provide eight MRC North community groups the opportunity to take turns cooking traditional foods each Sunday, as the local pub hands over its kitchen to local migrant cooks.
ABC News featured cooks from the Bhutanese Kirat/Buddhist Association at Community Kitchen on 18 June 2017, coinciding with the launch of Refugee Week. Watch the video and read the feature article at ABC News: www.abc.net.au

The vision of the Community Kitchen is to create opportunities for new migrants to broaden their social and support networks and share their stories through food; raise cross-cultural awareness in the community; and provide an opportunity for the groups to raise funds for their community’s activities. The first Community Kitchen opened 3 July 2016.
