REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL GENEVA

In 2019, Geneva will host again the Refugee Food Festival for a second edition!

In 2017, the festival brought together five restaurants and five talented chefs, to change our perceptions around the welcoming of refugees and their status, and of course, to make people discover flavors from elsewhere.

This is the beginning of a great adventure: collaborations between chefs gave wonderful dishes !

In 2019, this second edition in Geneva will offer a delicious program, from the neighborhood canteen to the gourmet restaurant!

Geneva 2019

The Refugee Food Festival is coming back in Geneva next June for a second year.

Around June 20th (the World Refugee Day) committed restaurants in Geneva will welcome and collaborate with talented refugee cooks.

Stay tuned ! More information will be released very soon !
