WE ARE LOOKING FOR A CHEF IN ATHENS, GREECE
WHAT IS OUR PROJECT ABOUT:
At Saffron Kitchen Project (SKP), we support displaced persons by creating opportunity and fostering community through food. We are a registered non-profit organisation that creates high quality, nutritious meals for vulnerable communities in Athens. With team members from around the world the opportunity for people to take pride in sharing their cultures' food. We aim to do three things simultaneously: Nourish, Train, Employ.
Our first pillar - Nourish – will see us provide people with warming, nurturing and inventive meals in a dignified and sustainable way. We will distribute to organisations throughout Athens that support vulnerable people, ensuring delicious meals whilst avoiding food waste as much as possible.
The second pillar – Train – will see us provide a culinary education and vocational training in an effort to prepare our students for work in the hospitality industry. Our programme will cover culinary skills as well as including soft skills training such as teamwork, leadership and time management, so that our participants are ready to embark on a hospitality career.
Finally, the third pillar – Employ – here we will help tackle unemployment in Greece by generating job opportunities for people from the refugee community. The meals will be prepared by the community for the community.
