Pay it forward with a meal this Christmas
Food security remains a major challenge for many people who were previously experiencing poverty and homelessness, and a new cohort of people unexpectedly made unemployed through COVID-19. There are also still people accommodated in hotels and motels in need of support. SmartMeals is playing an important role plugging the gaps in food relief systems.
SmartMeals partners with social enterprise across Australia. This support will help strengthen the recovery of these enterprises and help underpin their trading. Importantly, the SmartMeals partnerships will enable them to continue to provide vital job training, readiness and pathways programs for vulnerable people in a difficult jobs market. As the hospitality industry slowly opens up and rebuilds, SmartMeals will focus support on social enterprises who need help to rebuild and offer unique opportunities for job training and readiness in marginalised communities.
”Our on the ground team is reporting increases in job insecurity and unemployment, with people skipping meals. There is no way our operation can keep up with the current and continually rising demand. We are experiencing a spike in demand for those needing support.Plate It Forward
