Plateful Cafe employs local refugees in Lewisham within the food and hospitality sector. By providing refugees with the opportunity to cook and sell delicious food from their home countries at a variety of local events and markets, Plateful Cafe is creating a space where refugees can thrive as members of their local community.


We organise ticketed events such as fundraising dinners, where our refugee chefs are employed to cook themed three-course meals. These are often accompanied by live musical entertainment, and the opportunity to buy artwork created by refugee artists who are also employed by Plateful Cafe. All the money raised by these fundraising events is used to pay our chefs and artists, and build our training programmes for refugees living in Lewisham who wish to be employed in the food and hospitality industry.
