The Children's Food Education Foundation is appealing for donations of food literature for distribution to schools, communities and families affected by the recent natural disasters in Australia.
Losing a favourite cookbook, gardening book or food magazine may not seemimportant when compared to the loss of a loved one, a home or a livelihood, but weknow the simple acts of growing food, cooking and eating a meal together will serveto heal in their own special way.
We plan to aid the disaster relief by replacing food related books and magazineswith either second-hand or new literature. Kennards are supporting us with freestorage in Melbourne and Sydney so we can wait and deliver to communities whenthey are finally back in their vegetable plots and kitchens.
Thanks to the generosity of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, ArtPlay and City ofMelbourne you can deliver your donations to us during festival events as follows:
Sat 14 Mar Connex "Sizzle" near the Global Chargrill BBQ stage 12-5pm
Sun 15 Mar "Wicked Sunday" at the info tent on Fed Square 12-4pm
Fri 20 Mar ArtPlay, Birrarung Marr (behind Fed Square) 10am-12pm
