Lentil As Anything
“putting people over profit”
Lentil As Anything is a unique social enterprise that provides food without boarders; without borders of race or gender, finance or social status. With four pay-as-you-feel restaurants in Victoria and New South Wales, a food rescue grocery store and vegan catering team, Lentil is committed to feeding and connecting the community, and encouraging environmental sustainability.
In January 2019 I collaborated with the Lentil As Anything Abbotsford venue to produce photographs of the recently renovated space for their website and social media.
Opened in 2005 in the former dining hall of the nuns, Lentil Abbotsford is a vibrant and eclectic space to spend the day. Many of the people working at Lentil As Anything are volunteers. Members of the community who volunteer for a meal, to learn hospitality skills, or improve their social or language skills. The under-employed, the homeless, refugees and the disenfranchised are all given an equal opportunity to gain skills and help any of the 1000 community members who visit Lentil As Anything every day.
