Local Rapid Relief Team pitches in to help in BreezeWay kitchen
Ballarat’s Rapid Relief Team will provide their services to Uniting Ballarat’s BreezeWay Meals Program this Saturday 27 January.
The Rapid Relief Team will be supplying food and also cooking the lunch on their State of the Art Trailer to support those in need.
“We have a great relationship with the local Rapid Relief Team and it’s fantastic to have them come on board to work in BreezeWay.” said Naomi Bailey, Crisis Support Coordinator, Uniting Ballarat.
The Rapid Relief Team have provided support at Uniting Ballarat’s Christmas distribution day, offering sausages, drinks and a hearty smile to clients waiting to receive their Christmas packages.
Rapid Relief Team is a Charitable organisation which aims to serve those in times of need with quality food and refreshment.
“We have worked with Naomi for the last 3 years at the end of year events, and saw an opportunity to assist further,” said Marshall Crick, Local Team Leader, Rapid Relief Team.
“When Naomi commented that giving a meal at Saturday Lunchtime was one of her hardest missions - we decided to swing into action and assist.”
The BreezeWay Meals Program relies heavily on volunteers to ensure that a nutritious two course hot lunch and takeaway sandwich pack are available to those in our community doing it tough every day.
The Program is the only meals program in the region that can be relied upon by marginalised members of the community to provide nourishment and shelter 365 days a year.
“This makes the support of the local community and groups such as Rapid Relief Team all the more important for us” said Ms Bailey.
