Huweida – “Fridays are good. It is good to have customers and to share my recipes. I am making friends too. I am very happy.”
Abebea – “I am happy to make friends and to learn new food, to have communication with others including people who are in my English class but now they are my friends.”

We have had many participants at our function today, ask us, who supplied the catering, and we gladly advised them who to contact if they required catering themselves.
Could you please pass on our thanks to all those staff and helpers, at the migrant resource centre, who helped deliver today’s catering – and say we thought it was wonderfully presented (you eat with your eyes too) and let them know it was delicious!”
