Kungkas Can Cook was born after Rayleen Brown and her Co-founder Gina Smith's first catering job cooking for 100 Walpiri women at a big meeting at Laramba to support Indigenous teachers. They were complimented on their food and told they ought to have a restaurant. Kungkas support and adopt ethical harvesting and procurement of bush food from the first farmers.
