From small beginnings, 20 for 1 Community continues to grow and now serves more than 260 meals weekly to local residents doing it tough.
Partnering with Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre and Vinnies, 20 for 1 is all about sharing the love around our community, in a practical way.
“We can make a big difference in people’s lives just by letting them know that someone cares”, says MarcoDeAngelis who founded the program. At its heart, 20 for 1 Community is about teaming up with friends and local businesses and doing something for others. The many volunteers that work tirelessly every day talk about how a nutritious yummy meal can put a smile on a resident’s face when times are challenging.
The name 20 for 1 Community comes from the concept of delivering twenty meals for one community. It also shares its name with the postcode 2041 – it’s home, the Balmain peninsula.
A delicious meal is much more than a donation. It says, we care about you.
Many local cafes, restaurants and food providores support the program and talk about how it inspires their staff with the spirit of sharing. Now, hampers, snacks and other goods are donated to those in need as the initiative continues to grow.
The next stage of the program is looking towards supporting school children who may lack access to nutritional meals during their school day.
It only takes a little to do a lot!
