Local Welcome is a tiny startup charity that runs meals where local people and refugees come together for two hours to cook recipes, eat lunch, and wash up. In a divided world, making the time to connect with someone different from yourself is a radical act. We use the magic of food to bring people together, connect and share their stories. You start cooking as strangers, but you’ll end up eating as friends. Local Welcome has groups in 8 locations around the UK and is rapidly scaling up in the next two years. When it reaches 80 groups the organisation will be self-funding as the local people pay to be part of the experience as well as giving their time.
This project would be good for a mid-level developer who has experience with Zapier, integration of third party software and coding in at least one backend language.
