Lakeside Food Cart Project
Currently we participate in the Perth CBD Food Rescue which is a UCW volunteer based service. Volunteers collect surplus food at the end of the business day from participating cafes. The food collected will assist some of the 9000 people currently living rough in our community.
St Stephen’s have witnessed a growing need in the northern suburbs of families and individuals that are in desperate need of assistance. We have a strong relationship with UCW Merriwa hub and support them in various other forms of Service Learning.
The school is now in possession of two carts, one will replace the older UCW CBD cart, and the other, partly sponsored by Joondalup Rotary, will commence a service at Lakeside Joondalup next term. This is a joint community project commencing with a weekly collection and hopefully growing from there.
Primary and Secondary students and staff will each separately assist in a Wednesday weekly collection once a month. The other Wednesdays will be covered by Rotary, UCW volunteers, and hopefully our generous families. It is a wonderful opportunity for parents and their children to participate in volunteering together.
The run will commence after school at 4.15 pm approximately and should conclude by 5.30 pm. Therefore students will not be missing out on school time. We are currently collating a roster and you will soon be supplied with information sheets about the run. I am more than happy to chat with all that participate in the service.
UCW will arrange for collection of the food at the conclusion of the run, your role is simply to collect the food.
We look forward to our launch of this St Stephen’s initiative and sure that the donations will be appreciated.
