WHY PALESTINE

The Arab-Israeli conflict of 1967, left hundreds of thousands of Palestinians homeless and impoverished residing across refugee camps across Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan. 

 

Decades later, about 1.5 million vulnerable Palestinian refugees continue to reside across 58 official refugee camps across Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon with overcrowding and crumbling infrastructure creating unsafe conditions.  The camps often lack proper sanitation, housing, job and education opportunities and access to medicine. 

 

Craving Palestine has partnered with the NGO Anera, with full proceeds of Craving Palestine’s Recipe Book’s First Edition, going towards Anera’s long term support to Palestinian communities through education, health and development program that includes providing Palestinian youth access to learning opportunities from preschool through college. Innovative and flexible projects in early childhood education, school infrastructure, information technology, vocational education is helping people of all ages discover and unlock their potential.

Join us at a Supper Club being hosted at a city near you or fill this form to become a future potential supper club host, in your city.

 

Supper Clubs can be hosted at a local restaurant, at your home among family and friends or at a venue of your choice and enjoyed as a brunch, lunch, dinner or a Ramadan iftar or even planned as a mezze style karaoke night, whatever works.

 

Ideal supper club size is 20 to 48 guests with a simple set menu enjoyed from any of our Craving Palestine recipes of your choice where you can highlight the contributor’s stories behind the recipes.  Palestinian food is meant to be shared amongst family and friends so can be enjoyed as mezze style in the middle of the table as cold starters and then a main course and simple dessert.

 

Supper Club setting can be a long table where foodies, friends and colleagues come together to enjoy and celebrate their love for Palestinian food and giving, leaving with long lasting memories and as part of our global Craving Palestine family.  You can sell tickets through our website as a confirmed host and the funds will go directly to Anera, touching the lives of Palestinians that need it most.

 

Table decorations can be kept simple and themed around Palestinian ingredients such as fresh mint, olives, lemons, oranges as decorative accessories across the table.
