Providing meals to vulnerable people

Many are asking how they can help out in these challenging times.
Here’s a great initiative by St Patrick’s Community Support Centre in Fremantle, a well known charitable organisation, that is practical and trustworthy.
As St Pat’s explain on their website, COVID 19 pandemic is significantly affecting us all.
It is having a serious impact on vulnerable people in our community who are socially isolated and have limited access to income and food.
Meanwhile local restaurants are struggling to maintain their business in light of government restrictions.
St Pat’s is currently working with community services, businesses and volunteers to support those must vulnerable and impacted by COVID-19.

200 meals per day

St Pat’s are currently providing 200 meals each day for 90 days to people who are vulnerable in our community.
In doing that they are helping people feel connected and supported through this pandemic.
They are also supporting local restaurants to continue to generate income and remain in business.

St Pat’s need our help – 10,000 meals!

St Pat’s need to raise $160,000 to provide an additional 10,000 meals to people who are vulnerable. This will enable them to provide one meal each day to another 110 people for 3 months.
  • $16 will provide one meal to someone who is vulnerable.
  • $112 will provide one meal each day to someone who is vulnerable for one week.
  • $496 will provide one meal each day to someone who is vulnerable for one month.
  • $1,456 will provide one meal each day to someone who is vulnerable for three months.
Any additional funding will enable St Pat’s to provide meals to more people who need them.
If you aren’t are to donate at this time, please share this through your network and with your help St Pat’s will reach those who can.
