Food is a global language and is able to connect people and breakdown barriers. Today we would like to share with you a social enterprise created by Loretta and Dan (pictured), who are the project founders of “Free To Feed”.
Free to feed is a pop-up cooking school run by asylum seekers and refugees in Melbourne. Before fleeing their homes, free to feed cooking instructors played important roles as cooks, chefs, restaurant owners and/or as feeders of their families and communities.
The free to feed program provides individualised training and mentoring to participants culminating in a unique employment opportunity: delivering cooking classes at the free to feed pop-up cooking school.
These classes are an intimate and authentic cultural experience that gives back! If you are looking to sharpen up your cooking skills and wanting a memorable time with friends and family we recommend Free To Feed Melbourne.

Forbidden Foods was proud to be the red rice ingredient supplier to the pop-up Sri Lankan Dinner held in late July, led by the wonderful Niro (pictured below) and supported by the talented wandering chef, Laura.
