The Refettorio Felix project is also a centrepiece of the London Evening Standard Food Month. 30 chefs have volunteered to take a shift at the Refettorio Felix, a community kitchen. This project, originated from Massimo Bottura, three-Michelin star chef, who has been successful in running similar projects in Milan (Expo 2015) and Rio de Janerio (Olympics 2016) through his charity « Food for Soul”. The ingredients will be supplied by the Felix Project.

As part of London Food Month, #CookForSyria, an exclusive pop-up event, will be held at the Store Kitchen, 180 Strand. #CookForSyria is an international fundraising initiative to preserve Syrian Culture. This pop-up event was inspired by Imad Alarnab, who owned several restaurants in his native country before the war. Today, he lives in the UK with his family and he dreams of running his own restaurant again. During the event, he will be cooking alongside different chef each evening.
