Share a Dish

Food can say welcome or hold precious memories. Food says we are neighbours, friends, or chosen family. We are still alive, and we can feel joy. Food is healing. Food is home.

Every Refugee Week, people come together over food, sharing recipes, teaching each other dishes and of course, sitting down to share meals. Join in by sharing a dish for Refugee Week 2022.

You might:

  • Host a meal sharing dishes from different cultures, at home or as part of a Refugee Week event
  • Share or swap favourite recipes from home, and have a go at making a new dish!
  • Hold or join a cooking class to learn a dish and hear stories from other parts of the world

Share your recipes, events and proud culinary creations on social media using #ShareADish and #SimpleActs.

If your social media post includes images or names of other people, make sure you get permission first, including from parents/ guardians of anyone under 18.

Share a Dish is one of eight Simple Acts you can do for Refugee Week 2022. To view them all, visit the Simple Acts page.
