    By running a food drive, you can help the ASRC Foodbank in Footscray and Dandenong provide free groceries and toiletries to over 1,300 people every fortnight, most of whom have no income or work rights.

    You can host a food drive with your school, community group or business; this is one of the most immediate and tangible ways to give someone a hand up.

    Whatever language we speak or the colour our skin, we all have our dreams. 

    After ten years of fear, division and delay, it’s time we let the 31,000 men, women and children who’ve lived as part of our community for a decade have the safety and stability they need to reach theirs.

    All people subjected to Scott Morrison’s unfair “fast track” system need a pathway to permanence now.

    Host a Feast For Freedom this March and raise funds to provide food, shelter and health services for over 7,000 people seeking asylum who need support settling into Australia every year.

    Register as a Feast for Freedom Host today and you’ll receive a host kit full of recipes gifted by refugees – so you can plan your Feast, and create a meal that makes a difference.
