Peace Meal Kitchen is low-profit organization dedicated to educating diners on regions that either misrepresented by the media in the United States or are in political turmoil with the US government. Our hope is to humanize other cultures that are not easily accessible and initiate meaningful discussion regarding these misconceptions. During your dining experience you will learn about the geography, culture, and people of the country of focus.
In the spirit of our mission, the majority of profits from each pop-up are donated to a non-profit dedicated to the betterment of citizens in the country of focus.
Learn more about what countries are at conflict with the US through the Council on Foreign Relation's Global Conflict Tracker.
