“This pandemic and lockdown has had a serious effect on charity funding, which ultimately negatively impacts the lives of the most vulnerable people in our societies. Refugee Community Kitchen have continued to put themselves at risk and have been out on the streets every week to feed the UK’s homeless- they are some of the unsung heroes of this crisis. When we saw for-profit businesses start to pre-sell face mask designs, we saw an opportunity to raise money for a good cause, and create a beautiful, high quality product with some of our favourite artists. We want to offer a more morally- balanced alternative for people and to put some positivity out into the world during a challenging time” – Simon Butler, founder, Migrate Art

RCK help these exposed people in the most direct way possible- by providing regularly hot meals for anyone that needs them.
