Sanctuary Kitchen at CitySeed

Sanctuary Kitchen, a program of CitySeed in partnership with a network of community volunteers, was formed in 2017 to promote and celebrate the culinary traditions, cultures, and stories of refugees and new immigrants resettled in Connecticut. We believe that refugees and immigrants arrive here with the potential to contribute their own unique skills and passions to the diverse and changing face of the Greater New Haven Area. Sanctuary Kitchen seeks to highlight these skills in culinary pursuits that provide personal income potential, while promoting their culinary traditions, cultures, and stories to improve understanding and appreciation throughout our community. By attending a Sanctuary Kitchen event, you're helping refugees and immigrants receive training, support, income and opportunities to share their skills in meaningful ways.

All proceeds go to compensate Sanctuary Kitchen's refugee cooks and support the cost of materials and kitchen space. Check us out at, Facebook and Instagram @sanctuarykitchenct. For inquiries, please email

CitySeed is a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide access to fresh, local food for all New Haven residents.  CitySeed operates a series of food-related services and activities toward that end. CitySeed’s mission is to engage the community in growing an equitable, local food system that promotes economic development, community development and sustainable agriculture. CitySeed has a licensed, commercial kitchen space, which was built with the aim to joyfully build culture and community through education and entrepreneurship. Sanctuary Kitchen is an important piece of this work. See for more details.
