What we do

Kitchen on the Run is the mobile integration incubator from Über den Tellerrand e.V. With our blue kitchen container we carry our idea of ​​an open and diverse society to new places. We promote personal exchange between refugees and locals in order to get to know each other on eye level.

Why we do it

We meet the challenge that refugees and locals rarely meet in everyday life. We see personal contact as the foundation for integration in our society. We give impulses and spread our concept to shape intercultural coexistence in Germany and Europe in the long term.

How we do it

With a kitchen, built into a shipping container, we travel Germany and Europe. In a homelike atmosphere, we organize cooking evenings where refugees and locals can get to know each other at the kitchen table, reveal their favorite recipes, tell personal stories and start friendships.
