Since mid-June, Pakistan has been beset by disastrous record flooding. Around 33 million people have been displaced in what officials have called a climate disaster of epic proportions.

The death toll is now more than 1340 people, nearly half of whom are children. Floodwater covers around a third of the country, including its agricultural belt, with more floods expected in the coming weeks. Urban centres unaffected by the flooding are likely to see severe inflation and shortages of fresh food.

We are incredibly lucky to be able to team up with Xinyi Lim from Megafauna to put together her next Family Meal - a fundraising meal project she started during the pandemic to raise money for charity. This time, a feast will be prepared for you by Mazaidar Foods, a well-known and popular Pakistani restaurant in North Parramatta. The 3-course lunch will be served family-style, with vegetarian alternatives, and will include a welcome glass of Moondarra Lambrusco upon arrival (non-alcoholic option available) - see menu below. Guests are welcome to BYO, limited beverages will be sold. The event will be held at the beautiful community events space at Canva in Surry Hills.

Proceeds from this Family Meal will go to the EDHI Foundation in Pakistan, their flood relief teams are on the ground in all across flood-affected areas in Pakistan, providing relief assistance including cooked food, dry ration packs, tarpaulin sheets, medical aid & other non-food essentials.

Thank you to Canva and Mike Bennie from P &V Wine & Liquor for enabling us to run this event! 

Please inform us of any dietaries upon purchasing your ticket/s. We hope you can join us!
