Summary

At Saffron Kitchen Project (SKP) our mission is to support displaced people in building healthy, autonomous lives, using food as a toolkit. We are a community that leverages food so people can eat, cook, learn and most importantly, feel that they belong. We are a registered non-profit organisation that creates high quality, nutritious meals for vulnerable communities in Athens and employ chefs from the refugee community.

Challenge

In 2019 Greece was fifth in Europe for food insecurity among its citizens. More specifically 40% of people living in refugee camps in 2022 were denied food after the decision of the government to discontinue access to those who had not initiated the asylum procedure. Furthermore, cash assistance and housing programmes that supported the refugee population, have stopped or reduced operations in 2022, which led to more displaced people in Athens facing food insecurity and lack of financial means

Solution

Our solution is to provide vulnerable people both from the refugee and local community with nutritious and flavoursome meals in a sustainable way. We distribute throughout Athens, avoiding food waste as much as possible. We do this at an onsite dining room of our host partner organisation, and through our many partners on the ground and at community events. Our team of chefs are hired directly from the refugee community on Greek contracts giving opportunity, intergration and financial security

Long-Term Impact

Our meals help tackle the food insecurity faced by many vulnerable people in Athens. This will alleviate their stress, help with mental health and general wellbeing. Having the security of a balanced meal can help with people's instability and let them focus on building their lives without the worry of where the next meal comes from. Hiring from the refugee community offers access to fair and legal work opportunities, experience working in a European setting and intergration within Greek society
