Compass Community Care (CCC) Canteen – feeding program, Bentleigh East
CCC is a registered charity dedicated to supporting those in need, at risk and vulnerable within our community, through initiatives including our Canteen (i.e a weekly feeding program). We aim to grow this service to provide more practical support to those who need help the most. It provides patrons with a 3 course meal every Sunday and a food hamper to take home. We also distribute food hampers throughout the week to families in need with our relationships with local schools.
The major costs associated with the project are
Food supplies to restock pantry Cleaning equipment - vacuum cleaner, broom and dustpan Bluetooth speaker - to provide entertainment and a relaxing environment for patrons Food containers, cooking trays and carry bags

How they raise the rest of the funding
