Newcomer Kitchen is a Toronto-based project that provides Syrian refugee women with the option of making money and getting involved with the Toronto community.

The Newcomer Kitchen project provides a special service by giving Syrian refugee women the opportunity to cook a weekly meal. The meals are sold online for pickup or delivery and the proceeds are shared by the women who made the food. The service provides these women with a business opportunity and the chance to create social bonds with their peers and the Toronto community at large.

Most Syrian refugees have faced harrowing experiences and various challenges and it is crucial that there are support systems and services in place to ensure that they are able to integrate well into their new homes and communities.
