Save Lentil

Lentil as Anything has been a Melbourne institution for as long as I can recall. I remember the last time Kate and I went there and we realised we only had a few dollars between us. At any other restaurant we would have been in trouble but at Lentil as Anything we just slipped our coins in the 'donation' box and we were home free. We promised ourselves next time we would pay twice as much to make up the difference. I guess it is time we made good on our promise.

The Abbotsford Convent are looking to discontinue the lease of Lentil As Anything Community Restaurant in January next year.

This is terrible news. Lentil as Anything provide support and hospitality training for refugees, youth and other members of our community who are struggling to find an opportunity. Lentil are helping to address isolation experienced by new migrants and socially isolated people.

There is a petition here. Or you can drop into one of the Lentil as Anything restaurants and sign there.
