How This Refugee-Run Kitchen is Revolutionizing the Restaurant Industry

How This Refugee-Run Kitchen is Revolutionizing the Restaurant Industry

Refugees and immigrants are unsung heroes within the food industry, often relegated to unseen back-of-house positions. But at Flavors From Afar, a restaurant featuring a rotating international menu, refugees take the center stage. The menu here is an evolving tapestry of global cuisines from Belize, Guatemala, Venezuela, Egypt, Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, and more. And behind each intricately crafted dish lies a captivating story – the tale of a refugee chef who has found a fresh lease of life in the U.S.

Founded by Meymuna Hussein-Cattan and her mother Owliya Dima, a Somali refugee, Flavors From Afar emerged from the Tiyya Foundation, with a mission to provide resources and support to displaced refugees and asylum seekers.

Among the chefs is Menal, an Eritrean refugee who, after a perilous journey to the U.S., found solace and a second home at Flavors From Afar. Chefs like Menal don’t only receive fair compensation and recognition, they savor success with commissions earned from every signature dish enjoyed by their patrons. Together, these talented chefs create a space where food and compassion intertwine to form something truly powerful.
