Feasting at your organisation

Celebrate the rich multicultural fabric of our community, it’s diversity and the importance of inclusion by hosting a Feast for Freedom in your workplace, school or community group.

Feast for Freedom is a shared food experience in aid of people seeking asylum.

Cook and share dishes using recipes gifted to you by refugees (or your own!) to raise funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.


Why Feast?

We know that good food feeds the heart and soul and sharing a meal together reminds us that we are one family, one community and one people. So being a part of Feast for Freedom is not only a delicious discovery of different cultures and cuisines but a wonderful celebration of what unites us all.

Last year, 1,500 people around Australia took part in Feast for Freedom and this year, we’re inviting workplaces, schools and community groups to join the hundreds of household hosts across Australia.

As an organisational host this year you'll be taking your guests on a culinary journey, discovering new foods, cultures and traditions while raising funds to support and empower people seeking asylum. In turn, your guests can RSVP and make a donation toward your fundraising goal on your Feast for Freedom fundraising page (which you will receive when you register).

Not sure about cooking the recipes for so many colleagues at work? That’s not a worry - turn your Feast into a multicultural celebration and invite guests to bring along a plate of their own, too!

The Host Feast Kit

Everyone that registers to host a Feast will receive a free Host Feast Kit to ensure their Feast is a success.

Inside the kit, you will find:

  • A spice required to cook the main dish
  • A gift of Feast for Freedom branded bamboo spoon
  • A Feast for Freedom tote bag
  • The recipe required to recreate dishes
  • A table centrepiece with a special message for your guests, add it to your dining table
  • Conversation starters to facilitate a conversation that keeps refugees at the core of the Feast.
  • Invitations and posters to put up around the office
  • A donation box that you can display at work before your Feast and on the table at your Feast, for any cash donations.

 

Some of these special gifts also make great door prizes and raffle items to help you reach your fundraising goal.
