Climate Change Event with the Environmental Ministry
Klik her for dansk
by Sheikha Gross, Sisters' Cuisine intern
This fall, Trampoline House's catering service 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 such a of a great event, as well as being able to serve food at Copenhagen’s famous Town Hall.

HELP US INVEST IN A NEW KITCHEN
Sisters' Cuisine are skilled, but they are struggling with a kitchen that does not meet the needs of a professional catering business.
We're dreaming of a kitchen with space for a full team of chefs, with no broken hotplates, and with a dishwasher that doesn't take 45 minutes to finish.
Help us invest in a new kitchen by choosing one of the options below:
"The kitchen before was very small and wasn’t prepared for this amount of people, but now it is good, and we are working more professionally."
"Some of the kids have had a traumatizing past, but they feel very safe here"
"Trampoline House is a beginning of life and work"
"It’s a pleasure to be involved in a dynamic environment where everyone is part of a big family"
"I unfortunately have had to realize that the politicians in this country don't want to finance a decent treatment of asylum seekers and refugees"
"It’s very important to me that I use fresh ingredients in my food"
"In my heart, I'm interested in helping people"
"When I come here I feel happier and more energised than if I stay in the camp"
“I come to meet up with my friends and if one of them wants a haircut, they ask me and I just do it"

At this year’s Roskilde Festival, Trampoline House’s catering service Sisters’ Cuisine opened their own food stall in the Festival’s food court. It was a great experience, and hopefully a step towards opening a permanent Sisters’ Cuisine restaurant in the future.
"For me, People’s Meeting was so different from my own country. There were politicians who came and spoke with local people, something that is the opposite of in my country, and I think Danish people should be proud of their democratic culture"

2016 was a fateful year for Trampoline House. We began the year by officially declaring the house in danger of closing, and at the same time, we witnessed a humanitarian catastrophe on the political level that included the jewelry act, border control, stricter asylum policies and deliberate deterioration of asylum seekers’ conditions. The result was evident amongst the asylum seekers that we meet: increased poverty, isolation, and forced passivity.
