Melting Pot

Classes & Courses

Thousands of refugees, asylum seekers and young migrants in the UK are at risk of isolation, loneliness and malnutrition. The Melting Pot initiative uses cookery as a means to bring together the local community and unaccompanied asylum seekers, refugees and young migrants, providing them with the opportunity to connect socially over a shared cooked meal. 

JW3 together with JCORE’S JUMP befriending project, invites you to join us for cooking sessions where participants will have the opportunity to cook and socialise together.  At the end of each session, everyone will enjoy the freshly cooked dinner together. This is a unique opportunity to connect with others across different ethnicities and religions, and to use cooking and social eating as a way to interact and explore similarities and diversity.

If you are aged 18-25 and interested in taking part in one or all of the sessions, please fill in this survey. Please note spaces are limited and applying is essential. Applicants will be updated on their progress during early September 2018.

This project is funded by Near Neighbours.

About JCORE

Jewish Council for Racial Equality (JCORE) has been the leading Jewish voice on racial equality and refugee rights in the UK for the past 40 years. They work both within and outside the Jewish community to campaign for a fairer asylum system; educating children and adults about their responsibilities in a multi-ethnic society, and directly supporting refugees. Underpinning all of this work are Jewish values of social justice. JUMP is JCORE’s befriending project for young refugees and asylum-seekers who have come to the UK alone.
