“The meals are offered to the families as one way we can help them,” said Katie O’Kane, Assistant Principal. “They are always met with positive responses of acceptance, humble gratitude and, quite often, relief! We can provide hope that with this one small action, somehow everything will be OK.”
The meals cooked by chefs and volunteers in FareShare’s charity kitchen in Morningside were a “godsend” to Karen Oudyn, a member of the school community required to rest after a back operation.
“The dinners from FareShare supported my family, alleviated the stress that I was already experiencing, and I was able to concentrate on my recovery,” said Karen.
“By having the dinners from FareShare, I was able to support my family when I was experiencing the physical hardship. The meals were delicious, they were simple and easy to prepare, and most importantly, they were healthy. I also appreciated that there was minimal washing up!”
