Double Happiness Vegan

Wei Feng Bird is a local who has a passion for vegan food, and wants the world to know how simple it is to cook it, how good it can taste and how it contributes to a sustainable, peaceful world. She has a new business, Double Happiness Vegan, which she is operating from her own registered kitchen. Wei’s vegan dishes have been featured at several Sacrededge festivals.

Wei’s lunches will be available in the Atrium on Saturday.

Nithiya, Moorthy and Nithi are locally-based refugees and asylum seekers from Sri Lanka. After years of uncertainty, a relieved Nithi achieved Permanent Residency Status in 2023, along with 19,000 other refugees. However, Nithiya and Moorthy are amongst up to 12,000 asylum seekers who continue to be denied permanent residency.

Together the three have established a Social Enterprise that offers a delicious monthly Tamil Community Meal at Unitingqueenscliff, sharing hospitality, gratitude, culture, stories of lived experience and traditional Tamil food.

They will cook the main course for us for our Saturday Evening Dinner, which is included in the weekend registration. “Breaking down barriers through food, The Tamil Feasts are an exciting experience of colourful, aromatic, spicy and sweet Sri Lankan Tamil food. Share in their stories, celebrate their culture and show them that we are a supportive and welcoming community. Tamil Welcome Feasts – a social food project that is more than just a meal!”

Our Saturday Evening meal, which is included in the price of your ticket, has always been a highlight of the festival, as we engage with local Refugee Communities through their food.
