Benefit Voku for a Soup Kitchen in Khartoum, by SKRAPS Solidarity Kitchen

Thursday 20 June 2024, Benefit Voku for a Soup Kitchen in Khartoum, by SKRAPS Solidarity Kitchen. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

We are SKRAPS (Soup Kitchen for Radical Actions and Political Solidarity) [], a newly emerged cooking collective with the goal of transforming rescued food into tasty vegan dishes, and by that showing solidarity with national and international resistance initiatives.
On this Thursday, we are cooking a wonderful three-course vegan meal from rescued ingredients in Joe’s Garage, raising money for a local soup kitchen in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
After over a year of war in Sudan, the living conditions are worsening and there is a lack of electricity, clean water, and food. Today, 18 million people in Sudan face acute hunger. The lower agricultural production due to the war led to soaring prices for food and the ongoing fighting makes it difficult to fetch supplies. The situation in the capital Khartoum and the neighboring city of Omdurman is especially difficult. There, local initiatives for soup kitchens have emerged in different neighborhoods. The Sudanese organization “Hadhreen” together with the Dutch organization “Onderwijs Oost Afrika” is running such a soup kitchen in the Elrayan School, where people are being served their only meal of the day, which helps them survive.
