Climate Change Event with the Environmental Ministry
Klik her for dansk
This fall, Sisters’ Cuisine and the Environmental Ministry of Copenhagen teamed up to make food for over 300 people for the Climate Change Event at Rådpladsen in Copenhagen.

No beef and only organic ingredients were served at this event to reflect the environmental values of the conference. On the menu was a chicken curry, a vegetable curry, rice and two different salads.
The event was fun, but challenging, as two days were spent preparing and cooking the food. The women of the house, as well as volunteers teamed together with staff at Rådhuset to help serve food to everyone who attended the conference.
It was a beautiful sunny day and a wonderful experience to be part of such a great event, as well as being able to serve food at Copenhagen’s famous Town Hall.

“The kids with citizenship got all that is needed, but not children who are growing up in the camps. I'm just sorry they don't have the same rights as Danish citizens. Also, they don't have the same opportunity, freedom, house, food, generally normal life.”
