foodKIND is a small 100% volunteer-run humanitarian organization that gives food with kindness to refugees.
foodKIND supports Community Kitchen Workshops in camp Oinofyta. We provide equipment, food and guidance to empower the resident to cook for themselves. In addition, we distribute hot meals to people in Malakasa camp that are awaiting registration.
We have dormitory style volunteer housing in the small town of Dilesi about one hour north of Athens. In order to make sure the money we raise goes towards food, we ask our volunteers to donate towards the cost of the volunteer house. If you can not afford the cost of the accommodations, in certain cases exceptions can be made. The house has a washing machine, communal space, terrace, wifi and a kitchen for volunteer use.
Typical daily jobs include chopping, lifting, smiling, carrying, cooking, laughing, cleaning, scrubbing, and feeling joy. Due to the large amounts of food that we cook there is some heavy lifting and carrying.
