The Millicent Shares a Plate is a community group established to provide a free meal each Thursday evening for people who are struggling to make ends meet in the town and surrounds of Millicent SA.
To help the group get started, as we are not incorporated, and do not yet have a bank account the local District Council has agreed to auspice the group until it can be better established. This involves, in the short term, providing a bank account, training our group in food handling and covering the volunteers with insurance.
Millicent, a town of 5000 people and like most communities has a considerable number of families that struggle to make ends meet and often have limited food on the table.
A local business is providing a service on Tuesdays and our group intends to complement this service with a weekly Thursday offering. We currently have an informal committee of about 15 and a volunteer group of 39. We plan to hold our first dinner with a soup for three weeks this year to test our organisation, before cooking for a Christmas Dinner on 25/12/21. From the beginning of the new year we will be providing a sit down meal or takeaway (depending on Covid) for those who require it. We estimate about 60 people will be catered for each week.
We need to fundraise as that will be needed to cover the cost of foods that are not donated and materials such as containers and cutlery etc.
