Parliament on King is a social enterprise that operates a bustling Cafe and Curry House in the heart of Sydney. Parliament on King specialises in food that comes from the homelands of the asylum seekers and refugees.
Their mission is simple: To make lovely food for you. In doing so addressing the barriers to economic, social and cultural participation for asylum seekers and refugees.
We’re proud to be working with Parliament on King, and to share food from their talented cooks. With 100% of the sales of their meals going directly back to support their ongoing work.
Sally, a Burmese refugee originally from Myanmar, is serving up three of her famous curries. Sally is the first of the cooks from Parliament on King to start selling with FoodSt. We hope to use the collective power of FoodSt to enable Sally and her fellow cooks to share their beautiful meals with others.
As she puts it: “I was born to cook, it’s in my blood. Back home we had a family restaurant and we all loved to cook. The kitchen is my happy place - time flies and you can lose yourself talking, laughing and cooking. When people love my food and it makes them smile, I feel so happy.”
Here at FoodSt we're passionate about empowering people through the goodness of home cooking. Our partnership with Parliament on King is one example of how we can leverage the power of community to enable and provide opportunity to everyone. And theres something beautiful about food bringing us all together, just the way it was meant to be. ❤️
