Event description
A charity dinner supporting Brisbane's asylum seeker community.

About this Event

The Mongrel Good Food Project was created to support asylum seekers in Brisbane gain skills and experience in hospitality. The aims of the project are to help asylum seekers within our community get the upper hand with job-seeking, lessen social isolation and promote community engagement.

Asylum seekers in Australia are very vulnerable. There is mostly no financial support available for them and they often have short visas with intermittent work rights - so accessing basic needs like food and accommodation can be very difficult. This leaves most asylum seekers very keen to work and support themselves, but with many barriers to this being possible. The way we see it – hospitality is the perfect industry to help. People in hospitality are often on varying visas, often transient and very multicultural.

The project involves four days of training in front and back of house hospitality skills. At the end of the four day training course, there will be a charity dinner to raise money for Asylum Circle – a local charity that supports QLD-based asylum seekers access food, housing and community supports. For the dinner, the trainees will put their newly learned skills into practice under supervision of trained Mongrel staff. The trainees will then be able to use their recent industry training and local work reference to help with job seeking.

Tickets for the three course meal will be available in two sittings - 6pm and 7pm. Tickets are $100 with an extra donation option if you wish to donate further - all profits made will go directly to Asylum Circle.

The Mongrel Good Food Project is supported by Silver Chef, Veneziano Coffee West End, and the volunteers who have given their time and expertise to make it happen.
