L’Effet Papillon is a philanthropic catering service and future café-restaurant in Geneva. We use our profits to provide nutritional help and access to drinking water to people in need in Switzerland and all over the world.

Our goal: a meal bought at L’Effet Papillon finances a free meal to someone in need.

Our customers are the philanthropists as they decide which solidarity project they want to support! When you purchase a meal with us, you choose a project between 3 pre-selected ones and we will donate the profit of your meal to this project!

In the kitchen, we only use fresh and seasonal products, which are as local as possible. The packaging we use is either reusable, either bio-degradable. In addition to be delicious and original, our meals are healthy and environmentally friendly.
