Dutch residents invite Ukrainians at their home

Join Ukrainians For Dinner

In most of the Dutch municipalities you will find reception centres for Ukrainians. To offer Ukrainians a moment to meet local people in a homely atmosphere, Eet Mee is organizing Ukrainians for Dinner. Through the dinners at people’s homes, being Ukrainian, you can learn more about Dutch culture, practice the language and expand your social circle. For Dutch citizens, this is an opportunity to do something for the Ukrainians and to get to know the people behind the stories in the news.

What is Ukrainians For Dinner?

As a Ukrainian, you will be warmly welcomed by people who are happy to invite you at their home, to share a meal and a conversation. You can also cook together. It gives you the opportunity to get to know people and it is also a great introduction to Dutch culture.

As a Dutch resident, you invite Ukrainian people to have dinner with you and experience a cosy atmosphere in a homely environment. You either cook something delicious for your guests or do the cooking together with them.
