  • Centre for Stories 100 Aberdeen Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

Food for Thought is a monthly dinner that hopes to raise funds to support detained or recently settled asylum seekers through the celebration of food, culture and the sharing of stories. During every Food For Thought, a new community comes together to cook for 30 guests in a welcoming, comfortable and friendly environment.

Hossein is a young Ahwazi refugee who arrived in Australia late 2012. He completed his year 12 studies at Kolbe Catholic College whilst learning English, always fascinating other students by telling his story to the different school year groups. Now, he is employed by the school as the Information, Communications & Technology Systems Officer. He is a Human Rights activist who writes about the plight of his community (the Ahwazi Arabs) and explains how important freedom and democracy are.
