"POURING IT FORWARD" IN TROUBLED TIMES
Last updated: 25th June 2020
Soup Kitchen – Pour it forward by providing some hearty warm and nutritious soups to someone doing it rough right now.
We all hope life might slowly get back to normal after this crazy pandemic, but sadly “normal“ for some people isn’t what it is for others of us, especially if you’re living on the streets for instance. In fact for some of these people things will get worse again not better, as the Government has been providing emergency hotel accommodation for them during this crisis.
And heaven forbid how many more there may be after this pandemic subsides with so many people losing jobs and livelihoods. Great timing as we head into a long cold and wet winter too right..
Because we’ve seen first hand just how many people are really struggling, we’ve realized this way we can at least do our bit to help in a meaningful way.
Just $10 pays for three delicious hearty hot cups of soup for people in need... which as well as being available from our soup kitchen are getting delivered to people wherever they may be, in partnership with another fabulous organization Mobilise, who are helping to distribute our soups all around the state.
This includes our delivering soups for lunch to the Companions of the Vinnies men's crisis accommodation shelter down the road, who also eat their dinner here in our place every night.
And given the great support we have been receiving we are thrilled we are also now delivering soups regularly to safe houses for victims of domestic violence, including Catherine House, as well as to clients of a number of other amazing not for profit organisations housing and supporting vulnerable people in our community, including the Hutt St Centre, BaptistCare, Unity Housing and Puddle Jumpers.
