An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Thursday, repeating until December 14, 2017

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian refugee women to use our kitchen to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide an honorarium for the cooks.

Meals are available for pickup from The Depanneur, 1033 College Street
(between Dufferin & Dovercourt) from
6–7pm on every Thursday
Meals go on sale each week on Monday nights.

(approx. Keele to Spadina, St. Clair to Lakeshore)

NEW 6km Delivery Option!
If you live outside the free delivery zone, we are testing a new delivery option in partnership with foodora:
$10 flat fee for any address within a 6km radius
(approx. Park Lawn to DVP, Eglinton to Lakeshore).

We also offer 1 guest cook spot to help/hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal on Thursday afternoon. We are asking for a $50 donation for this, which will go to topping up the $ we have to share with the cooks. This is available for purchase online, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Proceeds from the sale of meals goes directly to the newcomer cooks. However this does not cover the costs of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes coordination required to keep this project going. You can support the Newcomer Kitchen project directly and our vision of expanding this model to support more women in more neighbourhoods!

Help us take this idea into any kitchen, in any city in the world!
