About this opportunity

Address: 316 St Pauls Tce, Fortitude Valley 4066

Wesley Mission Queensland’s Community Meal has been serving people who find themselves in times of hardship since 2005 in Fortitude Valley. The free meal provides a vital lifeline for more than 100 marginalised people offering them a nutritious three-course, hot meal. The service aims to assist people who are experiencing disadvantage, many of whom face the challenges of social isolation. The inclusive nature of the meal is a unique drawcard for clients, staff and volunteers with everyone encouraged to come along and sit down and eat together. It’s an opportunity for people to engage with others, eat some healthy food and feel part of the wider Brisbane community.

Community Meal volunteers work alongside Wesley Mission Queensland paid staff, providing support and assistance at the Community Meal program each Monday.

Shifts include:

  • 10am to 1pm - basic meal preparation
  • 1pm to 5pm - pre-cooking, dinner preparation and set up
  • 5pm to 8pm - serving dinner and post-dinner cleanup.
