PROVIDING CARE, GROWING HOPE
In our local community and state
We have been offering services to our community for the last 15 years, partnering to see it thrive and prosper while bringing solution and practical support.
Our heart is to see our community empowered, healthy and grow.
Feeding our community, connecting the disadvantaged
Heavens Kitchen operates from the Studio at the Don Centre 100 Don Rd, Devonport
Every Thursday evening with doors opening at 5.30pm for coffee and connection with meal served at 6:15pm
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Our weekly program Heavens Kitchen (HK) feeds approx.
80-100 vulnerable, marginalized and disadvantaged
people in our community.
The restaurant-style atmosphere provides a three-course meal in a friendly safe environment where they have access to good, nutritious healthy food. Heavens Kitchen is using food as a social link and connection point meeting the needs of people in our community who are often isolated, alone and undernourished.
Sharing a meal together provides not only nutrition for the body but also provides social opportunities.
To connect in an informal safe environment where you are accepted and cared for, a place to belong and form family connections. Many of our participants are experiencing genuine hunger due to difficult life circumstances such as mental health, homeliness and disability.
As Heavens Kitchen participants grow in confidence and skills they are given the opportunity to volunteer
in our catering kitchen in preparation of the weekly meal to our community each Thursday evening.
This opportunity can also lead to a pathway of possible employment.
Emergency food relief is also offered on a regular basis for those in crisis need.
When we stand together, partnering with others, we can accomplish much more than if we stand alone. All the funds go to help others as we partner with amazing people and organisations locally to make a lasting difference in the lives of many people that would not otherwise be the case.
Join us in changing lives forever by giving a weekly amount or one time payment.
