Host with your Community

 

You can also host a Feast as part of your community group. We’ve had some amazing Feasts from church groups, schools, neighbourhood communities and more. It’s a wonderful way to get together and celebrate the rich multicultural fabric of our community.

Register as a Feast for Freedom Community Host today and cook recipes gifted by refugees to help raise funds for people seeking asylum - it’s a meal that makes a difference.

Four Easy Steps

1. Register to become a Host

Simply register your community event here.

The official 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.

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 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. You’ll receive their recipes (and more) in the Feast Recipe Booklet sent to you in your official Host Kit, which includes things that will help you host your Feast. Find out more about the goodies included in your Host Kit.

3. Plan Your Feast

The hardest part is choosing which recipes you will cook. You can cook the full menu from one of our Cooks or a mix of recipes, including some of your own family favourites or past Feast recipes.

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

With your menu sorted, you? need to finalise your guest list, event details and continue fundraising. If you need help updating your fundraising page, see our User Guide
