“I am absolutely passionate about supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses,” says Michael Moonesinghe, founder of the EPFS Community. “This first Home Cooks & Entrepreneurs Fair helps gives our vendors such a great and affordable opportunity to showcase their products and services, plus help support the charities we support.” The EPFS Home Cooks & Entrepreneurs Fair aims to support small home businesses and entrepreneurs by providing them with a platform to promote their goods and services and at the same time, continue to support the EPFS Community’s charities and worthy causes. Vendors will be free to make a voluntary donation to the group’s charity fund based on how successful the fair has been for them; entrance will also be by a voluntary donation.
