Host at Work

 

Celebrate what unites us by hosting a Feast for Freedom in your workplace - it’s a team meal that makes a difference.

As a workplace host this year, you’ll be taking your colleagues on a culinary journey, discovering new foods, cultures and traditions while raising funds to support the ASRC.

This year, we are partnering with A Taste of Harmony, which means your workplace Feast can make an even bigger impact in celebration of cultural diversity at work with exclusive access to useful A Taste of Harmony factsheets whilst raising funds to support and empower people seeking asylum.

Four Easy Steps

1. Register to host a workplace Feast for Freedom

The Feast weekend is held from Friday 25 - Sunday 27 March, but you can host your Feast outside of these dates if that's more convenient for you. However, all Feasts should be hosted before Saturday 30 April.

Simply register your workplace event here.

2. Receive Your Host Kit, Start Fundraising, Meet our Cooks

It’s time to discover the delicious recipes from our Cooks that have been gifted to you. As a Feast Host, you will also be set up with your own fundraising page too to start fundraising.

Our Cooks, who are all refugees in Australia, have hand-selected delicious dishes from their own cultural traditions for you to cook and share with your guests - alternatively, you can encourage colleagues to bring a dish from their own cultural heritage. You’ll receive the official Feast recipes (and more) in the Feast Recipe Booklet sent to you in your Host Kit, which includes things that will help you host your Feast, including conversation cards to keep the dialogue flowing and reflect on the challenges of someone seeking asylum.. Find out more about the goodies included in your Host Kit.

3. Plan Your Feast

You could nominate a few people to cook our recipes for the Feast, or turn your workplace Feast into a pot-luck celebration by inviting guests to bring along a plate of food to share.

Please note: we do not provide any ingredients for the recipes, as your requirements will be based on your menu and anticipated guest numbers.

If cooking is a challenge, order in! If you’re based in Melbourne, our award winning social enterprise ASRC Catering can assist. Inside your Host Feast Kit is an exclusive offer - just to make your workplace Feast that little bit easier.

Once you’ve made a plan, share the event details with your colleagues, as well as the fundraising page link so they can donate towards your fundraising goal. If you need help updating your fundraising webpage, see our User Guide.

Join our online Facebook Group! Here you’ll be able to ask questions about holding a Feast, share recipes and be part of our ever-growing Feast community.
