Techware Soup Kitchen 2016

Techware Soup Kitchen 2016


On Saturday 23rd July the team from Techware will be donning their chefs hats and aprons to help those in need in Melbournes' CBD. 

In a recent article published by the Age - the full extent of the levels of homelessness in Melbourne city were revealed. 

"In Melbournes' CBD there are 247 people living on the streets – a 74 per cent increase in two years."

The number of people sleeping rough in the city is a real concern with homeless numbers on the rise and a shortage of accomodation options. The article also outlines that homlessness isn't a current budget issue, which adds further complexity. Living on the streets has it's own inherent dangers and problems; personal safety, well-being, general health - the list is endless. 

The Techware team decided that providing meals would be a great initiative to get behind to give back to the community.

So on Saturday 26th we will be running a kitchen at the Multicultural Hub on Elizabeth Street to provide warm and nourishing meals to those in need. To start the day the team will be cooking a three course meal and then serving from 6pm. 

Another initiative that we need to mention is Cafe Smart. It's an initiative where supportive cafes' Australia wide donate $1 of each coffee sold to one of their incredible projects - click here to read about them. 

Street_SmartYou can get involved by checking out their website, finding a participating cafe near you and buying yourself a cuppa.

Techware is involved in a number of community oriented events and next month we are sponsoring the Southern Cross Kids Camp Golf Day "Out of the rough" – If you don’t know what the Southern Cross Kids Camp is about, click here to get more information.
