Washington, Dc 20009
This Ramadan, Komeeda is bringing its heralded Displaced Kitchens series to one of the District’s most distinguished Middle Eastern outposts. Mama Ayesha and Komeeda will be giving a recently-resettled refugee the opportunity to take center stage and share their story and their culture through their food this high holy month. The bi-weekly iftars (dinners) will highlight the nuances of this pillar of Islam, and are sure to be delicious (even if you haven’t been fasting since sunrise). Connect with guests from all walks of life, and get a taste of something unforgettable.

The Displaced Kitchen #eatkomeeda series is a campaign aimed to bring together people to hear a perspective of a recently resettled refugee. We feature a refugee to share their story over a feast! Our "Chef-ugee" hosts left various conflict zones for safety, and have resettled since. All of whom experienced the hardships of survival, and the hardship of acclimating into our society, the Displaced Kitchens is aimed to bridge the gap through food by providing them an outlet to share their journey, and their cuisine with our Kommunity.
