Free to Feed is a not-for-profit social enterprise. In awe of the enterprising spirit of refugees, people seeking asylum and new migrants and appreciative of what they want to offer as new community member's we aim to champion their unique skills and individual stories. Free to Feed's advocacy is delivered through a number of food-oriented initiatives. We're a mobile cooking school hosting classes, workshops, events and immersive food experiences; we're also home to a growing pantry stocked full of beautiful spices authentically blended by our cooks in residence. Free to Feed is also the proud parent of Now to Launch, a food business incubator supporting refugees and new migrants to realise their culinary dreams.

Free to Feed exists to:  

  • nurture entrepreneurialism,
  • facilitate personal and professional skill development through mentoring and training,
  • provide an avenue for economic empowerment and financial independence
  • encourage self-advocacy,
  • open doors and broaden networks, and
  • offer vital resources necessary to achieving all this!
