ABOUT HOMELESS FOR A WEEK 2017

Basement Soup Kitchen Coordinator Nat Spary is going homeless for a week between 1st – 7th August, 2017. The Basement Soup Kitchen is Toowoomba’s only soup kitchen which provides lunch time meals to anyone in need 11am – 12:30pm weekdays, and is co-ordinated by Base Services Inc.

Most days The Basement Soup Kitchen sees 40 to 60 people in need including men and women, individuals and families of all ages who are homeless or at high risk of homelessness, ex-service people, people with health issues, people facing trauma due to grief, loss or separation, people with addictions, Indigenous Australians and migrants come in for something to eat and a chat.

The Basement Soup Kitchen is vital for those doing it tough in Toowoomba, as it is often the only meal that person will eat for the day and the only place where they are able to connect and feel accepted.

We try to help out where we can, providing blankets, swags, warm clothing and links to accommodation and other necessary services including the Department of Human Services, Oz Care Health Clinic, Teen Challenge Day Rehabilitation Program and the Homeless Person’s Legal Clinic who visit weekly.

Please help us keep The Basement Soup Kitchen doors open tomorrow by donating today!

All donations over $2 are tax deductable.
