How do you make someone feel welcome?
Simple, combine our Cook for Good program with the House of Welcome’s Welcome Feast, mix together and let the magic develop.
Brigidine College Randwick Year 9 students spent a morning at Our Big Kitchen with refugee and asylum seekers chefs Promela from Pakistan, Umma from Bangladesh, and Farah, Samira and Parastoo from Iran, learning to cook delicious Zeleshke Polo (Iranian Chicken Drumstick), Potato Tiki, and vegetable fried rice.
The girls and chefs shared a taste-bud popping lunch, and Jo from the House of Welcome inspired us all with a talk about asylum seekers and refugees. Several hundred meals were then given to the House of Welcome to share with refugee and asylum seeker communities, and Brigidine girls also delivered meals to Jewish House, a non-denominational crisis centre. This was truly a morning of ‘food for thought’.
