The corona virus pandemic is affecting tens of thousands of people in so many ways, including loss of work and lack of food and daily supplies. The elderly, sick and homeless and the needy are the most vunerable during these times.
The Sikh Volunteers Australia have organised a FREE FOOD (Vegetarian) delivery service direct to homes of the needy, this is in addition to the weekly Free Food Van which has been increased to 3 times a week during this crisis period.
Started on 18 March 2020, the volunteers saw more than 200 requests for food deliveries with over 300 meals delivered on the first day.
The service also targeting people who are in self-isolation in Melbourne’s south east will run for 2 weeks (from 18 March to 1 April 2020). Anyone living in the defined areas can call the numbers before 12 noon to have the food delivered on the same day between 5pm to 8pm.
The food menu for the various days have also been announced on social media to include: Gluten Free Pasta, Veg Soya Curry, Chickpea Curry, Veg Korma and Fresh Salad.
