Project Of The Month — June 2017

ACTION AGAINST HUNGER

We all know how good we feel with a hearty meal in our stomachs.  Going hungry means it’s hard to function, it’s hard to get through the day.  Food also brings us together.  A warm bowl of soup or a roast dinner sustain us, the human contact enriches our lives, connecting us, and helping to combat loneliness and isolation. This month, as we head into winter, our StreetFunders are supporting the important work of 3 organisations providing a ripper feed and friendship for those doing it tough.

The CareVan provides a safe place for those in need, in Albury/Wodogna, to sit down & share in a meal with the company of friendly volunteers. Carevan provides over 300 mobile meals per week plus another 300 meals to shelters, woman’s refuges and community groups as well as providing swags, blankets, beanies, scarves & care packs.

The Adelaide Day Centre Soup Van provides hot, nutritious soup, bread and good company to people in need, in the city squares and parklands of Adelaide every night throughout the colder months. The soup is made and served by a dedicated team of volunteers who also knit beanies, scarves and gloves and donate blankets and warm clothing. Connecting to people on the street they also hand out sleeping bags, swags, blankets, warm clothing, back-up tinned soup and fuel.

St Mary’s House of Welcome is a day centre supporting those experiencing poverty, mental illness and homelessness in the heart of Fitzroy, Melbourne. They provide hot, nutritious lunches six days a week, serving over 1,500 lunches a month, made from food sourced through food rescue organisations and generous community donations. As little food as possible is purchased.
