A Place at the Table

Hospitality and community have been part of what it means to be A Rocha since the very beginning. In a new book co-written by Miranda Harris, a co-founder, and her daughter Jo Swinney, our Director of Communications, these themes are explored in the context of the many colourful stories of A Rocha tables around the world.

You can support our work and be among the first to get your hands on a copy in early September. All royalties will go towards the work of the A Rocha worldwide family.
