An authentic Syrian menu, an international guestlist, one table. An eye opening experience into Syria's culture and women

Initiated by Expat and Austrian Aid for Refugees, Food for Thought is a nonprofit group that has been successfully empowering women who have sought refuge in Vienna over the past 5 years. We organise dinner parties and events, at which we invite Syrian women to cook Syrian food. As a group, everyone then enjoys the meal together. The food offers a great introduction to Syrian culture and creates a comfortable environment for the women to interact with one another.

Our model brings Austrian, Expat, and Syrian women together in their homes to share a meal, breaking down cultural, language, and social barriers, promoting understanding and integration.
