The request for this workshop first came from a group of unaccompanied minors and young adult refugee boys. They lived away from their families and didn’t know how to cook, therefore gaining that knowledge was essential for their survival and better quality of life.

At the same time the workshop served and continues to serve an equally important need: to overcome their loneliness. Food is a way of socializing and personal exchange not only with friends but also with the other community members. Interacting with other people and other cultures allows to create a larger network of relationships and thus to feel more empowered and autonomous.

Through the cooking lessons the participants remember their past, connect with their new present and shape their future. Thus, the basic essence of integration is achieved.

  • Cooking classes take place once per week.
  • They are open to all beneficiaries of KYCLOS regardless of age, country of origin and gender.
  • PoCs that know how to cook and they want, can enter the cooks/teachers team.
After every cooking class, a community kitchen takes place where food is distributed to all participants, all beneficiaries of KYCLOS that are in the premises and to the neighborhood.
