We are looking forward to having you and your team here at Meals Plus for your corporate volunteering day experience.
Meals Plus is a place of welcome that provides people with a hot meal, supports their basic needs and connects them with community resources. Our visitors come from many backgrounds and circumstance, some may be experiencing homelessness or social isolation, others facing financial stress, unemployment, or living with mental health issues.
Meals Plus provided over 56,000 meals to disadvantaged people last year – an increase of 20% from the previous year. Our services also provides emergency food assistance, laundry and shower facilities, legal advice by visiting solicitors, housing advocacy, Centrelink outreach service and referral to accommodation services. Apart from the Meals Plus Coordinator and a Cook, Meals Plus operates entirely on a volunteer workforce. On an usual day, our volunteers may be tasked with preparing food, cooking, washing up, setting tables, clearing tables, serving meals, setting out produce for emergency food parcels, cleaning up, stacking chairs and folding tables, as well as unloading and sorting any donations received.
We hope you enjoy your experience in Meals Plus – we love the work we do and the people we serve.
