The humble kitchen is oft looked upon as a space of utility, leaving it cosmetically bare. Believe it or not, there are ways to jazz up the kitchen that far surpass that calendar your aunty got you. Food For Everyone is offering up stunning works to accompany your place of culinary mastery, and if you buy one, you’ll be helping give to those in need.

The works are illustrated by artist and founder of the project, Gemma Leslie, who will be donating all profits to FareShare, a charity where volunteers cook excess food and give meals to people who need it most.

Each print depicts a recipe supplied by notable names from Melbourne’s food scene, including  a green vegetable and barley soup courtesy of Instagram chef Clementine Day and Suzanne Corbett’s (of Faraday Cafe fame) green bean and anchovy salad.

The project came to fruition from Leslie’s love for mealtime and its universal ability to bring people together, while donating to FareShare helps assist isolated communities, low-income families and people experiencing homelessness in enjoying a hot meal with others.

“Our mission is to raise funds for FareShare, and bring joy into people’s homes through art and colour. Food For Everyone is born out of love for sharing food with family and friends. Coming together and sharing a meal would have to be the most communal and binding act around the world, attached with wonderful memories.” Leslie said.

There are four prints in total, which are all available for pre-order from now until Thursday 10 September here.
