What is a Peace Feast?

A Peace Feast brings people together,

from different cultures and faiths,

for food and friendship

There are three key ingredients

Food

Everybody loves eating. A feast is a celebration and a window into another culture.

It's the timeless art of bringing people together to share a meal and demonstrate hospitality.

Stories

Stories are at the heart of a Peace Feast. Through speeches, music and conversations around the table, people start to see the world through someone else's eyes.

Friendship

Peace Feasts create the opportunity for friendships to flourish between people of different cultures. The food and stories simply get the ball rolling and the conversations flowing.

Dan Green,

Peace Feast UK Coordinator

"We want to contribute towards a society that is more peaceful, more cohesive, where people are better neighbours to one another and where people who are new to that society are made to feel more welcome."

Bushra Alshishabi,

Peace Feast volunteer

"The first time I came to a peace feast I didn’t know anyone… I started talking and I met new people, I learned a lot from them and the next time I started volunteering. I felt I’m home, even though it’s not my country, I feel really good."

Kathleen Johnson,

Peace Feast participant

I enjoyed the sense of community, of sharing time together and bringing people together with food and beautiful music. I also enjoyed learning about different cultures and hearing about experiences different to my own. It was such a positive evening!
