Episode 7 with Izzy Walton & Chelsea Claydon
In Episode 7 of Custodial Care, Kirilly yarns with Izzy Walton and Chelsea Claydon who were early on the scene volunteering at the Koori Mail Flood Hub and became integral in setting up the Koori Kitchen. Izzy is a chef and Chelsea is a producer and together they organised the volunteer-run community kitchen that feed thousands of people in Lismore and the surrounding areas who had no access to kitchens or shops, 7 days a week for many months after the devastating 2022 floods in the Northern Rivers region, Bundjalung country. Here they tell the stories of how the kitchen evolved and the help they received from thousands of volunteers, the hospitality community, Koori Mail, World Central Kitchen, Tribal Warrior and eventually government agencies. They talk tips on food and disaster relief management, and the incredible healing power of community, volunteering and camaraderie after a natural disaster.
