Camcorder Guerillas & Open Jar Collective Resistance Recipes
Mon 10 October 2016
Camcorder Guerillas and Open Jar Collective are hosting a film and spice-bag making evening to support Calais Kitchens. There are currently over 9,000 people living in the Calais refugee camp. Representing eleven nationalities including Sudan, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Iran and Iraq. People are here for different reasons and many are fleeing war and conflict in their home countries.
Calais Kitchens enables people to cook for themselves by distributing food and firewood to every home in the refugee camp once a week - the aim is to ensure all people in the camp have access to food in a way which upholds dignity and respect.
We will be spending a few hours watching films about the current refugee situation while making up as many spice bags as we can manage. Calais Kitchen will put one spice bag in every food parcel that they send out, making a huge difference to the meals people in camp can prepare. This initiative should save the Calais Kitchen team a whole lot of time and money, and it’s an opportunity to bring some of your love and care to the Calais Kitchens table.
This event is part of RIB Project: not by the book
