#BUILDTHEKITCHEN

We want to solve Ghana’s biggest challenges all under one roof by equipping young Ghanaians with practical skills, knowledge and a network. To bring forth the next generation of changemakers in food and build a resilient and [self] sustainable Ghana. In order to equip THE KITCHEN, we need to close a funding gap of 100.000€. Here is how you can help us.

FUND THE KITCHEN

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO OPEN THE KITCHEN!

DJI_0065.DNG
Why?

Construction of THE KITCHEN will finish this fall. But to open our doors, we are crowdfunding € 100,000 / GHc 1,408,500. This amount will fully equip the complete building with materials, furnishing and appliances, and kick starts our first training program supporting young Ghanaians to launch a food brand.

 

This is your chance to become a founding member of THE KITCHEN and open the doors to a bright future for thousands of young Ghanaians! We are reaching out to both our Ghanaian and international supporters to crowdfund the last leg of this ambitious project.

ABOUT US

Ghana Food Movement (GFM) is a network of food actors including chefs, entrepreneurs, farmers, nutritionists, journalists and food activists who are determined to work towards a stronger local food system.

 

GFM's vision is a self-sufficient Ghanaian food system that provides jobs, boosts local economies and enables access to nutritious local food while protecting ecosystems and biodiversity.

 

We provide access to a diverse network and opportunities in the food space, curate immersive food experiences, design youth focussed capacity building programs and offer consultancy on sustainability, youth engagement and food innovation.

WHAT PROBLEMS DO WE SOLVE?

WE FLIP THE SCRIPT ON YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT IN GHANA

 

12% of Ghanaian youth are unemployed, which is significantly high. A study by GFM among 1,000 Ghanaian youth found that having the right resources, connections, and skills is very important for Ghanaian youth to find good jobs. We tackle these challenges by opening a food education hub to train, support and connect young food and agric talents.

WE REDUCE GHANA'S RELIANCE ON FOOD IMPORTS

 

Every year, Ghana’s food import bill increases and we are heavily dependent on imported food. This trend undermines the development of the food industry, local economies and job creation. Diets are also changing, and food traditions and recipes are getting forgotten. In THE KITCHEN, indigenous ingredients are always the centre of attention and traditional food practices are revived.

WE ARE PUSHING FOR AFRICA'S FIRST MICHELIN STAR RECOGNITION

 

There are no Michelin-starred restaurants in Africa. This tells us that the world is missing out on our rich diversity of flavours, ingredients, and deep culinary culture. Through THE KITCHEN we promote Ghanaian and West African cuisine globally to showcase the quality and complexity of our produce and dishes!
