Each experience will feature a five-course menu reflective of the "chef-ugee's" native land. Taste the flavors of our hosts' native cuisine, the dishes that brings them back to their memories of calm and comfort. As they share their most intimate and vivid stories of their journey to America, engage with you chef-ugee host, fellow curious eaters, and financially support our hosts' resettlement efforts to alleviate their struggles.

The Displaced Kitchen #eatkomeeda series is a campaign aimed to bring together a collective of people to hear a perspective of a recently resettled refugee. We will feature three different refugees to share their story with us by ways of an unorthodox Ramadan iftar dinner (breaking of the fast). Our "Chef-ugee" hosts left various conflict zones for safety, and have resettled here in New York City. All of whom experienced hardship to survive, and hardship acclimating into our society, the Displaced Kitchens is aimed to bridge the gap through food by providing them an outlet to share their journey, and their cuisine with our Kommunity. --- Photo Credit: Luc Kordas / Metro NY
