Every so often the team at KWD get to funk up the vibe and work on a project with attitude and a social conscience. Take this Richmond restaurant for example. Feast of Merit is a chic modern space with a relaxed atmosphere, scrumptious menu and staff devoted to a wonderful cause. The Swan Street establishment is an initiative of YGAP (Y-Generation Against Poverty), a charity that supports youth education and leadership projects in Malawi, Ghana, Rwanda, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Australia. Co-founder Elle Critchley explains the cafe is an attempt to develop permanent funding for the charity. In support, some of the staff at the cafe volunteer their time, while suppliers such as St ALi, Hopkins River Beef and St. David’s Dairy donate products. White subway tiles by KWD look totally at home under the main bar. The combination of eclectic fittings and fixtures makes the whole area come together as a stylish oasis. Feast of Merit is a communal dining house offering delicious seasonal produce, raw foods and an assortment of locally sourced drinks. Being local, ethical and sustainable (and, of course, delicious) is part of what drives their philosophy. The team consider their food as Middle Eastern Spring meets Melbourne – a city where the public demands quality, accessibility and flavour.
