Benefit Voku for L'Auberge des Migrants, Calais

Short url: 

https://squ.at/r/a6do

We are a crew of former members of "Foodbank Maastricht", where food is regularly rescued from being thrown away, redistributed, and transformed into vegan three-course meals. Foodbank saves hundreds of kilos of food weekly and feeds hundreds in Maastricht.


On this Thursday, we are cooking a wonderful three-course vegan meal from rescued ingredients in Joe’s Garage, raising money for "L'Auberge des Migrants" in Calais, northern France. "L'Auberge des Migrants" is a network of employees and volunteers that provides support for people in exile on the France-UK border. Since 2008, they have been active in the region, providing direct material aid, support and advocacy to everyone who needs it.
In one of their main projects called "Woodyard", volunteers distribute up to 10 tons of wood a week to people in camps, meeting essential winter needs. Their main focus lies on working in solidarity and questioning the dynamics of oppression and humanitarian governance, offering autonomy to volunteers to better respond to the difficulties of living conditions on the border. Through their actions, "L'Auberge des Migrants" fights to promote a dignified, unconditional and appropriate hospitality for all.
