About Chefugees

The Displaced Kitchen series is a campaign aimed to bring together to hear a perspective of a recently resettled refugee. We will introduce refugees to share their story over a feast that reminds them of home. Our "Chef-ugee" hosts left 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.
