Description

Quoi de mieux qu’un bon repas pour délier les langues et goûter à une autre culture.
Eat & Meet bus est une association qui vise à bousculer les préjugés autour de l’immigration à travers les échanges culinaires. C’est une plateforme mobile qui utilise la cuisine comme base d’une économie sociale, solidaire et responsable.
Lauréat du concours What Design Can Do “Refugee Challenge”, en partenariat avec la Fondation Ikea et le Haut Commissariat aux Réfugiés, nous avons choisi Paris, capitale de la gastronomie qui se nourrit des cuisines du monde, pour réaliser notre projet.
L’idée ? Lancer une cuisine mobile professionnelle qui permet à des cuisiniers réfugiés de faire connaître leur culture et leurs recettes.
Vous aussi, montez à bord de l’aventure Eat & Meet bus!

Food is an excellent catalyst for acquaintance and cultural exchange. Eat & Meet uses food to foster relationships and warm hearts, presenting refugees as an indispensable part of modernity. The project turns renovated city buses into food trucks where refugees can cook and sell food from their culinary tradition, with proceeds going to the workers as well as integration projects. A weekly recipe offered to customers is a pretext to evoke the culture, heritage and history of refugees. A ‘social space’ at the rear of the bus acts as meeting place, with the bus becoming a vehicle for branding, a landmark in the city that moves and connects people despite distances.
