Celebrate our community this World Food Day
World Food Day on 16 October aims to promote awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and to highlight that everyone deserves to have access to fresh and healthy food.
In Sacred Heart Mission’s Dining Hall, hundreds of people experiencing homelessness and social disadvantage come together every day to share a community meal and engage with our services.
Join us this World Food Day and enjoy cooking one of our most popular Dining Hall meals with your family and friends.
