Melting Pot is a Danish non-profit and charity foundation. Its goal is – through activities with food, crafts and food entrepreneurship as recurring elements – to improve the quality of life and future opportunities of vulnerable groups and marginalized populations. The target group is particularly but not exclusively, children, young people, some with criminal records, refugees and immigrants from the countryside who have settled in poor areas of major cities.
Melting Pot was initiated by Claus Meyer, and based on his desire to make poor people benefit from his 25 years of experience in striving to improve food security Danish. It is based on his belief that with hard work, a cooperative attitude, the right people, with faith in the best of the rest, and a little courage, great results can be achieved with very little investment.
