Tamil Feasts x Great Australian Curry Dinner
25 October 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM UTC+11
Opportunity International Australia’s The Great Australian Curry is back for 2017. For those who don’t know, it’s an initiative to raise money for families living in poverty in Asia.
Too many people in the world live in poverty – and sadly, many of them right on our doorstep. Just past Australia’s shores, Asia is home to family after family who struggle to earn an income. As a result, they go without three meals a day, clean water, safe shelter and even school for their children.
Asia is also full of incredible curries – from the Korma Curry of India to the Green Curry of Thailand. Colourful dried spices hang in busy streets while the air is filled with the incredible aroma of street food and home cooking.
We’ve teamed up with CERES Tamil Feasts this year to put on a curry event that you’ll want to attend. Tamil Feasts is an initiative where a group of Tamil aylum seekers prepare a selection of traditional Tamil dishes for guests, getting the opportunity to work and interact with the community in which they are wanting to become a part of. Guests get to show their support for the asylum seekers by attending, and of course get to enjoy some tasty and authentic Sri Lankan food.
At the Tamil Feasts x Great Australian Curry dinner expect to enjoy curries, chutneys, vadai, dahl, kormas and masalas.
Half the money raised will help Tamil asylum seekers and half will help Opportunity International Australia provide small loans to families in Asia, giving them the tools they need to start their own businesses, earn regular incomes and begin to leave poverty behind.
