This summary is of the contents of the twitter account of the Refugee Food Festival and the aims of this festival. The goal behind this initiative is to have restaurants open their kitchens to refugee chefs for cooking. Aside from sharing and enjoying good food with people from different cultures, such festivals serve as very important tools for the integration of refugees into mainstream society.
While the Festival was held in June, the Refugee Food Festival twitter page continues to tweet about upcoming dinners/meals prepared by refugees. This not only helps raise awareness about the refugee crisis, but also helps with their integration.
