The Bless Collective Food Van was launched in June 2016 and operates at Bourke Park in Pakenham. The Food Van aims to provide a hub for food and friendship for those in need in the local community. We provide meals for our guests as well as items such as clothing, toiletries and emergency food supplies. We also work alongside Orange Sky who provide portable laundry facilities and Clean as Casper who provide portable showers. As a collective, we are able to support and meet the practical needs of those who are vulnerable, lonely and isolated in our community.
We are located at Bourke Park in Pakenham each Tuesday and Thursday night from 6pm – 9pm. So, feel free to come along, say hello and see what the Bless Collective Food Van is all about!
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, would like to support the project financially, or if you simply have more questions, then please email [email protected]. We also have a Facebook page ‘The Bless Collective Food Van Project’ which is updated regularly with information, so please give us a like and stay in touch!
