Conflict Café celebrates the power of food to break down barriers and get people talking. As seen in the Guardian, Independent and Evening Standard, Conflict Café is the charity pop-up that serves peace through food. Diners join communal tables, where they are treated to traditional dishes from countries that have experienced conflict around the world. Great food is at the heart of Conflict Café, but it is also an informative and interactive dining experience where you get to know more about the country highlighted. Established in 2014 by peacebuilding NGO, International Alert, Conflict Café has served over 1,000 diners, highlighting cuisines and conflicts from Sri Lanka to Colombia, Syria to Myanmar. "There is something very significant about the act of bringing people together around a table to eat, whatever their differences: the very act of cooking and sharing food is a unifying one. It's true that this is not the only tool for peace, but it is a step in the right direction and a great reason to support Conflict Café." - Yotam Ottolenghi, restaurateur and food writer Want to join the next Conflict Café?

I really enjoyed the meal, especially the vegan main course! Atmosphere was lovely, there was lots of time to chat over the three courses and the talks were well spaced out and really interesting! A really really enjoyable evening! Thanks to everyone involved! :)

Having previously volunteered for Conflict Cafe, I thought I'd invite some friends to break bread with them and I wasn't disappointed - neither were my friends! The food was well prepared and tasted great in fact I asked for an extra bowl of the crackers!! My friends are vegetarians so I even got to taste of of theirs! The amount of work, time and effort put in by Androniki and her team was incredible everything was executed with precision to ensure the food and content was presented in a manner that people could enjoy without breaking conversation. The night was brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed so a big thank you to all Rush :)
