SHANAKA FERNANDO AND TIM THORNTON
Shanaka Fernando is often hailed as a modern-day revolutionary. As the founder of the Lentil As Anything community restaurants in Melbourne that feed thousands every week, he advocates a unique business and life perspective. An advocate and practitioner of the “pay as you feel” business model, Shanaka believes that, “when money loses its value, the goodwill and kindness we extend to each other will emerge as the ultimate and most sustainable currency of exchange.” Shanaka will be in conversation with La Trobe University / MFU economist Tim Thornton about money, food, fairness and Shanaka’s new book _Everybody Deserves a Place at the Table_.
