Sligo’s Global Kitchen (SGK) began life in 2014 as a cooking venture that opens its doors to everyone in the community especially those living in direct provision to meet, cook and eat and share music culture and of course food!
Normally held at least once a month at the Model, Sligo Global Kitchen host an event where everyone from the community is welcome to try food from different countries and serious battles have raged over who’s Jollof rice is best!!
SGF have also hosted Christmas Dinner with a global menu and gone on tour to events such as Cairde’s Parkfest.
In March, 2018 the group won the community award from the Irish Food Writers Guild.
As The Irish Times noted in March 2019 Sligo’s Global Kitchen continue to” break bread and barriers” in their own colourful and tasty style!
