What is a Peace Feast?
A Peace Feast brings people from different cultures and faiths together around a meal, to build understanding & friendship.
There are three key ingredients:
Everybody loves eating. A feast is a celebration and a window into another culture.
It's the timeless art of bringing people together to share a meal and demonstrate hospitality.
Stories are at the heart of a Peace Feast. Through speeches, music and conversations around the table, people listen & start to see the world through someone else's eyes.
Peace Feasts create a space where friendships can grow between people from different backgrounds and experiences of life. The food and stories help to get the conversations flowing.

"We want to contribute towards a society that is kinder, more welcoming and more inclusive - where people are better neighbours to one another and where people who are new to that society are made to feel more welcome."

"The first time I came to a peace feast I didn’t know anyone… I started talking and I met new people, I learned a lot from them and the next time I started volunteering. I felt I’m home, even though it’s not my country, I feel really good."
Peace Feast participant
I enjoyed the sense of community, of sharing time together and bringing people together with food and beautiful music. I also enjoyed learning about different cultures and hearing about experiences different to my own. It was such a positive evening!
