Our meals are distributed to large and small charities who help people in desperate need secure nutritious food.
These agencies include soup vans, homeless shelters, women’s refuges, support groups for single parents, RSLs and school breakfast programs in disadvantaged areas. They also include large groups like the Salvation Army and the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre.
Some charities serve our meals directly, such as Vinnies’ Vans which hand out our savoury pastries and soup. Others pack them in food parcels for vulnerable people to take away.
Once cooked in our kitchen, we chill our meals and immediately deliver them for serving within a couple of days. We can only provide meals directly to a small number of charities. Most of our meals in Victoria, and all of our meals in Queensland, are distributed by Foodbank.
We provide all our meals free of charge, and charities must guarantee to give them away for free to the men, women and children in need of support within their communities.
