Meals plus Community Outreach Program provides meals, case work support and emergency food parcels for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Meals Plus is Parramatta Mission’s version of a ‘soup kitchen’, providing over 150 meals daily, from Monday to Friday at breakfast and lunch times. Showers, toilets, laundry facilities, case work support, housing assistance, medical referrals, on‐site financial counsellors and chiropractors, pro‐bono legal services and Centrelink outreach are also available to this target group through Meals Plus. Meals Plus also serves as an accommodation referral gateway and provides short‐term emergency accommodation assistance to over 25 people daily. Apart from Meals plus Coordinator, the case worker and a Cook, Meals Plus operates entirely on a volunteer workforce. Volunteer tasks are fully supervised and include: preparing food, cooking, washing up, setting tables, clearing tables, serving meals, setting out produce for emergency food parcels, cleaning up, stacking chairs and folding tables.
