The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s (ASRC) is holding its annual fundraising event, Feast for Freedom, this March between the 19th and 22nd, raising awareness and funds in aid of people seeking asylum. More than 700 people are expected to take part and host a ‘Feast’ in their or workplace on the campaign’s official weekend, cooking dishes from recipes gifted by refugees and people with lived experience of seeking asylum.
Feast for Freedom is a celebration of what unites us; food, culture and community, while raising vital funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, an independent, not-for-profit supporting people seeking asylum. This year’s Feast will feature recipes from Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea and Iran, lovingly
gifted by the event’s featured hero cooks Genet, Veronica and Hamed respectively. Everyday people around Australia will cook up a storm and host their friends and family for a Feast inspired by the recipes and stories of the event’s hero cooks, all of whom have lived experience of seeking asylum in Australia.
Chef and social enterprise restaurateur Hamed, one of the hero cooks, has gifted his favourite dishes for celebrations including a particularly special recipe for his father’s yoghurt dip lovingly named Dadami Dip which directly translates to ‘from my father’ and a fragrant Jewelled Saffron Rice, among others.
Host a Feast, inspired by the recipes and stories of people seeking asylum to raise funds for the ASRC and support people in their journey to freedom. Find out more or register your Feast at feastforfreedom.org.au or call 1300 692 772 (1300 MYASRC)
