How it works

This March, hosts across Australia will hold a feast at home or in the workplace for their special guests. Register as a host today and help raise funds for people seeking asylum, it’s going to be delicious...! Join us!

Four Easy Steps

1. Choose your cuisine

Our Cooks, who are all refugees here in Australia, have hand-selected delicious, simple dishes from their own cultural traditions for you to cook for your friends and family in your home or workplace.

2. Register to host

Simply register as a host, choose the recipes you wish to cook (or create a menu using your own recipes) and begin to plan your celebration of the rich flavours that people seeking asylum bring to Australia.

You can host at a time that suits you, including outside the main feast weekend in March.

3. Prepare your feast

As you register, you will receive via post a kit with the recipes and other supporting elements so you can start planning your feast.

We will also email you a personal fundraising webpage where your guests can RSVP and you can receive donations toward your fundraising goal to support the work of the ASRC.

4. Host the feast

It’s time to celebrate what unites us!

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.
  • 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.
