We are „Über den Tellerrand kochen“ - which is German and can be loosely translated as cooking outside the box. This already sums up pretty well what we are doing: cooking and bringing together people from all over the world, overcoming barriers and helping strangers to become friends.
Über den Tellerrand kochen aims to improve the integration of refugees into German society. By using the topic food as one of the most accepted media for cultural exchange, we reach out to both refugees and natives, putting the issue asylum into a new, positive perspective, creating awareness for the diversity and cultural richness of our fellow human beings, giving way to valuable encounters with one another on an equal footing.
We are convinced that creative, educational and sportive programs with a strong cultural connection are the basis for mutual interest, respect and friendship. We promote an active exchange among refugees and natives and we give the opportunity for refugees to build a network of friends, allowing natives to develop a knowledge of new cultures and traditions.
Together for a united us!
