WE’VE GONE VEGAN.

We at Houria have made the decision to join our Afro Vegan sisters and brothers and create a menu that is entirely vegan. We realised that being anti-slavery and anti-racist activists means that we must acknowledge and speak to the climate crisis and industrial farming, knowing how closely linked these issues are. We honour the intersections of the climate crisis with oppressive systems such as white supremacy and migrant injustices.

Houria was founded in 2020 by three people of colour living in Bristol, Kim Prado, Leila Gamaz and Mani Chauhan. They shared a pain and a passion for refugee women’s rights, and so they pooled their resources to create a food-centric enterprise that would tackle social isolation, discrimination and financial insecurity. Houria is a black-owned business that provides skills sharing, safe employment and sisterhood for refugee and asylum seeking women and female survivors of modern slavery in Bristol.
