Indulge for a cause
Oyster lovers can have a delicious dining experience for a cause when Richmond's Feast of Merit cafe hosts an Oyster Feast supporting YGAP's 5Cent Campaign.

YGAP is a not-for-profit organisation focussing on local solutions to poverty by finding and enabling start-up entrepreneurs in South Africa, Kenya and Australia.

Richmond's Feast of Merit will host an all you can eat Oyster feast supporting YGAP.

Feast of Merit's concept is inspired by a festive ritual in North-Eastern India whereby a wealthy member of the village will liquidate all their assets to throw a huge, celebratory feast for their community, bringing together all of the village's poor and underprivileged members as everyone feasts and celebrates together through a distribution of wealth that empowers and unifies the community.

To support of YGAP's 5Cent campaign, Feast of Merit will host an all-you-can eat Oyster Feast fundraiser on Monday, May 25 at 6:00pm.

The 5Cent campaign was launched in 2012 as a simple concept encouraging Australians to collect over $150 million worth of the five-cent coins in circulation during the month of May to raise funds for communities that need it most.

The event will have a spectacular buffet of oysters and the bubbles will be flowing. The event will also include special appearances from musicians Jr.C, Jaime Robbie Reyne on acoustic guitar and Carey Watkins.

Feast of Merit Oyster Feast will be held at Feast of Merit, 117 Swan Street Richmond on Monday, May 25th 2015 at 6:00pm
