A community lunch party will be held at Macmasters Beach on April 25 in aid of people seeking asylum.
Feast for Freedom will be a shared food experience, a delicious celebration of what unites the Central Coast community.
Organiser Kathy King said several guests would share their own experiences at the event, which will raise money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC).
Money raised through the event will support King’s goal of raising $500 for the ASRC, with $252 already raised.
“The ASRC supports people and families with their basic food, housing and medical needs during their journey to safety and freedom; as well as advocating for a fair, just and welcoming Australia,” King said,
“Helping people seeking asylum is very important to me, so I have set a goal to raise important funds for the ASRC.
King invited all members of the community to bring a dish to share inspired by the cooking recipes of people who sought asylum here in Australia.
She encouraged people to bring their own drinks, cutlery, plates and drinking cup or glass (preferably avoiding disposable items to reduce waste).
The event will be held in the grounds of Corribeg Reserve, MacMasters Progress Hall, Tudibaring Pde MacMasters Beach from noon on April 25.
