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.
Our storyteller for the evening will be Askale. Askale was born and raised in the Ethiopian capital city of Addis Ababa. She’s the eldest of 8 children. She had studied at Addis Ababa Technical College for two years before she fled to Kenya-Nirobi then Kakuma refugee camp, a life changing experience that will stay with her for long time. She arrived safely in Australia in 2000. Askale will also be our chef for the evening, cooking for us the recipes taught to her by her mother.
