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 and kickstart your fundraising with a donation to your community fundraising page.

Feast Week is Monday 20 – Sunday 26 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 Sunday 30 April.

2. Receive your Host Kit & Meet our Cooks

Discover the recipes gifted to you by Benny and Esmat, learn more about their stories and start planning your menu.

Our Cooks, who are 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 your Host Kit.

You could nominate a few people to cook the recipes from one of our Cooks or turn your Feast into a pot-luck celebration by inviting people to bring along a plate of their own family favourites to share.

3. Plan Your Feast & Start Fundraising

Invite your guests and start fundraising by updating and sharing your fundraising page! Make sure you let your donors know the impact of their support.

Please note: we do not provide any ingredients or cooks for the recipes. You will need to purchase your own ingredients based on your menu and anticipated guest numbers.

Don’t forget to finalise your guest list and event details, source your ingredients and continue fundraising. If you need help updating your fundraising webpage, see our User Guide

You can also join our Facebook Group where you can ask questions about hosting a Feast, share recipes and become part of our ever-growing Feast community.

4. Host Your Feast for Freedom

It’s time to Feast for Freedom, celebrate what unites us and raise funds for people seeking asylum! This is a time to enjoy great food and company, whilst having thought-provoking conversations relating to the refugee issue.

Don’t forget to use our handy online resources and items in your Host Kit, including the conversation cards to keep the dialogue flowing and learn more about the refugee issue.
