We had the pleasure of being a part of the MumKIND FEAST for Vinnie's Women's Crisis Centre on Saturday night. Nearly 50 women and children enjoyed a special feast designed especially for them.
MumKIND created this happy event to show kindness and build connection.
The table was beautifully set by Felkke, flowers by Emilie Cervelli from Kilter and we had the pleasure of providing a three course meal for the women and dinner and dessert for the children (who enjoyed a movie night while the women feasted)!
Victoria, Director of The Family Cook shares "No one is immune to domestic violence and/or homelessness; it could happen to any of us."
"I can only image how much harder it is if you have children to protect as well. It is unimaginable."
"The strength it takes to leave a bad situation with your children and ask for help is immense."
"We hope FEAST gave these brave women a night to pause, relax and feel nurtured. We hope they were able to enjoy each other's company and form friendships with those they shared a table with and that the kids enjoyed a night to be just 'kids'."
"It was a privilege to be a part of their healing process and we thank MumKIND for allowing us to be a part of such a special event."
