Auburn is one the most multi-ethnic communities in Sydney with a large number of new migrants. Many of these migrants are ‘irregular maritime arrivals’ (asylum seekers) with very little ability or resources to access and prepare food. Auburn has been declared a ‘Refugee Welcome Zone’ by the local council. There are a large number of asylum seekers being housed in Auburn. Auburn Anglican run a ministry dedicated to helping recently arrived refugees.
The program includes:
- Meeting the need for food, and for food security, in the Auburn community.
- Providing food, as well as education about accessing food, as well as provision of basic cooking appliances, where needed.
- Relationship building.
