A number of generous South Australian businesses are helping those experiencing food insecurity throughout lockdown, such as those who might have lost their main source of income through the stay at home orders.
Passionate that no one should have to experience the stress and anxiety of not knowing where your family’s next meal is coming from, these incredible local businesses are creating a number of ways where you can receive a package of home-cooked meals or groceries.
A number of the businesses are offering collection or delivery options, with no judgement and no questions asked, so you can have one less thing to worry about through the lockdown.
Chefs on Wheels
Chefs on Wheels provides ready-to-eat dishes from some of Australia’s best chefs which include handy boxes of frozen meals to defrost, ready to eat at a time most suitable to you.
The company is offering anyone in SA’s lockdown to send them a DM if they’re experiencing food insecurity, and the expert team at Chef’s on Wheels will be in touch to arrange an easy collection of a curated food package.
