Settlement Services International (SSI) is a leading not-for-profit organisation providing a range of services in the areas of humanitarian settlement, accommodation, asylum seeker assistance and foster care in NSW. Our vision is to achieve a society that values the diversity of its people and actively provides support to ensure meaningful social and economic participation and to assist individuals and families reach their potential.

SSI self-funds this initiative confident that the Community Kitchen provides not only healthy meals that nourish the body but the equally important nourishment of the soul that comes with the experience of feeling welcome.
