Mera Kitchen Collective

Mera Kitchen Collective is a community-driven, food-based cooperative focused on the empowerment of refugee and immigrant women by tapping into their passion for cooking, self-expression and creating community.

Mera Kitchen Collective offers pop-up events throughout Baltimore City. We host these in private homes and restaurants, and each event showcases the story and cuisine of a different Mera member. Mera's chefs come from all over the world and are here seeking refuge; they are eager to put their skills back to use to re-establish an independent, sustainable livelihood. We hope to connect you with our chefs and our chefs with their local community.

Mera Kitchen Collective is a worker-owned cooperative - each member has ownership in the enterprise that we have built together. This allows for each individual to not only strengthen their culinary expertise, but also build equity and have a voice in the operations. Our collective is founded upon the values of equity, solidarity, empowerment, and community.
