Yet another great news story. Happy Easter, and stay safe :)
Shaun Christie-David opened Sri Lankan restaurant Colombo Social in November. To say it has been a tough start for the Enmore Road eatery would be an understatement, but still feels compelled to help others. "To us, being business owners comes with a huge level of responsibility. If we don't step up now, everything else we do as a business is irrelevant because when people needed us we weren't there." The restaurant has partnered with local charities such as Mission Australia and is aiming to deliver 2000 meals a day for people in need. His phone won't stop ringing. "The amount of people who have reached out to us over the past three days alone has been unprecedented." He says the "restaurant-quality" meals cost about $5 each, but the business is donating the cost of labour and asking donors to give $2 per-meal online to enable them to reach more people.
