Dutch residents invite Ukrainians at their home

Join Ukrainians For Dinner

Reception centres for refugees from Ukraine have been opened in many municipalities. To offer the refugees a moment to meet local people in a homely atmosphere, Eet Mee is organising Ukrainians for Dinner. For people living in the Netherlands, this is an opportunity to do something for the refugees and to get to know the people behind the sad stories in the news.

What is Ukrainians For Dinner?

As a refugee from Ukraine, 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 first introduction to Dutch culture.

As a Dutch resident, you invite Ukrainian refugees 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.
