At-Risk Individual and Families

Who are At-Risk Individuals and Families?
We support people who for reasons beyond their own control miss important meals. We partner with the organisations that address their specific concerns. By providing meals to these groups, we help other organisations deliver social services tailored to these needs.
Let’s Feed primarily works with victims of family violence, homeless youth, and other disadvantaged members of our society
Let’s Feed works to fill a gap in the services available to these groups of people.
There are many dedicated, hardworking government and non-profit organisations that focus on these people’s legal, social and health needs.
However, there are few avenues for these people to get proper meals – an essential foundation for being able to seek help and work with these organisations.

The Model
Let’s Feed collects non-perishable food from local groups: temples, participating grocery stores and delivers to relief groups and other agencies.

Let’s Feed supports the work of specific-focus organisations by delivering meals to those in need. Complex social issues require well-laid groundwork.
In addition, there is community-wide benefit:
  1. By addressing hunger, we start to address the social domains of relative disadvantage.
  2. Easier delivery of social services means better results, increasing social and job opportunities for those affected
  3. Greater social inclusion, reducing barriers and social stigma among peers and community members
  4. Community engagement with volunteers and donors
  5. Multicultural engagement; many donors come from particular cultural groups who are eager to help and engage with the wider community

Final Word
“There are many dedicated services helping vulnerable people in our communities. We help them deliver services by addressing one core, shared basis: food. Those in need are more likely to seek, engage in, and benefit from social services if the basic need of hunger is addressed. Our work supports the delivery of these important social services”.
