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?
