Melting Pot

Classes & Courses

Think about it – food marks the most important time of the week for most of us. Whether it’s gathering with friends, family, or just indulging in some brilliant cuisine at the end of the day, it’s the moment when we kick back and relax. But it’s not like that for everyone.

There are thousands of refugees, asylum seekers and young migrants in the UK at risk of isolation, loneliness and malnutrition – and for them, mealtimes can be fraught with trauma. 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.

In other words, get that feel-good glow and have a schmooze at the same time. Oh, and there’s food involved. Now you’re interested!

There are only a handful of spaces for 16-25 year-olds from the JW3 community to get stuck in to this amazing project, so to get involved, pop an email to katy@jw3.org.uk. Go on – start the Jewish New Year by doing something amazing.

Dates: 17 October, 14 and 28 November (all Wednesdays)

Times: 6.30-9pm

How to sign-up: email zara@jw3.org.uk or katy@jw3.org.uk to get involved in one, two or all three sessions

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.
