Eat Up – Making sandwiches for school children

Stay Social were delighted to host 32 volunteers from Eat Up Australia, who in 45 minutes made over 1,000 sandwiches, as organised by The Greater-Good Project. The volunteers delivered the sandwiches to all 12 Bendigo primary schools for children who for whatever reason come to school without lunch.

Also supported by Bendigo Foodshare and OzHarvest Melbourne.

 

 


It’s hard to believe, but there are many young Aussies who go to school each day without any lunch. Without food, concentration is compromised. Which means learning is compromised. Which means their future is compromised. That’s not really fair, is it?

Eat Up is all about changing that. With the generous help and lunch-making skills of a dedicated army of hospitality students and volunteers, we make and deliver hundreds of lunches a month to schools in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. In fact, since 2013, we’ve delivered over 34,000 lunches. Which is over 34,000 afternoons of learning salvaged from the grips of hunger. And we’ll keep going until all of Australia’s hungry school kids are fed.
