300 Blankets operates an Outreach Program twice a week to directly engage with people sleeping rough in Melbourne’s CBD. Lead by an experienced Night Leader, teams of volunteers provides people experiencing homelessness with important information on homelessness services, friendship and support in a time when they are generally in greatest need of social and material aid. This effort is in recognition of the fact that social isolation and a sense of disenfranchisement can proliferate among people on the streets.
Soul Kitchen is a no charge community program on every Sunday evening in Braybrook. This is operated by a dedicated team of volunteers who not only prepare an amazingly nutritious meal, but who also share this meal with those who may be struggling to make ends meet, or who are feeling socially isolated. The people accessing this service range from singles, couples to young families. Soul Kitchen brings the local community together in a safe and respectful environment for anyone who wishes to share a meal, chat or play a round of Connect 4.
The Iceolation program began in May 2020 in partnership with Melbourne Ice (Foundation) and involves the fortnightly Saturday distribution of a nutritionally diverse grocery parcel to people across Melbourne at risk of or who are experiencing homelessness. The Program directly addresses the issue of food security and the Program operates across the western, northern and eastern suburbs. Volunteer today to be a part of food parcel deliveries to our community.
