Homeless Feeding Programs
Every Wednesday evening at the Hampton Park Community House.
Every Sunday evening at Victoria Market in the Franklin St car park in the City of Melbourne.
Utilising fresh food that is donated to us, we prepare and cook a huge range of healthy and nutritious dinners, snacks and treats to those in need of support. All food is cooked and served up fresh.
We currently feed between 200 and 300 people at each session!
Our Super Hero
Enter Joe Calleja who, as a local businessman was all too willing and able to help find us a new home because he believed in what we do and saw an opportunity to repay the community who helped with his own successes.
Joe and his family not only located a suitable, local factory for us to move into, but generously donated 3 years rent of the building to us as a way of thanking us for our community work.
We are eternally grateful, thank you!
