Great photos of Sunday’s Street Feast at IMMA with End Direct Provision Dublin, where we enjoyed food prepared by residents from Direct Provision centres. People living in Direct Provision do not have their own kitchen or table to participate in Street Feast, like other Irish communities. This event aimed to change this for the day and to allow the discussion about ending Direct Provision to continue. Great food cooked by people not allowed to cook for their kids!
