The Grain Store and CERES Fair Food are hosting the dinner
Asylum seekers are amongst the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Australia. The ASRC delivers services to over 1350 asylum seekers at any one time through programs such as food and aid network, health, legal, counselling, and casework programs. Since 2001, the ASRC has assisted over 10,000 asylum seekers, providing in excess of 2.5 million hours of free assistance worth more than $200M. The ASRC delivers 25 unique programs with a team of 50 staff and over 950 volunteers.
This event will celebrate the exemplary efforts and achievements of the ASRC.
Similar to the last two Full Moon dinners at The Grain Store, executive chef, Ingo Meissner, will prepare a wholesome three course meal featuring an abundance of locally grown, fresh produce set at communal tables.

There will be some interesting guest speakers on the night, who will highlight some of the successes of the ASRC, including:
Ruby Prior from the ASRC, who will talk about the key challenges asylum seekers face and ways you can get involved to help the ASRC,
Ameen Al Jamali, a leading hand at CERES Fair Food, who will describe his journey from Iraq to Australia and discuss the help he received from the ASRC to find employment at Fair Food, and
Jesse Hull, CERES Fair Food manager, who will explain how employing asylum seekers isn't charity at all but actually makes Fair Food a better enterprise.
The Grain Store is the delightful venue for this charity dinner
Gather your friends and colleagues to share a delicious meal and a great night of uplifting stories, while contributing to the wonderful work of the ASRC.
