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.
