Mother’s Kitchen in Melbourne began in November 2011.
Since October 2016 we have joined the Darebin Community Canteen in Preston and serve lunch every last Saturday of the month. The Darebin Community Canteen is a collaboration between the Anglican Parish of Jika Jika, Secondbite, the Darebin Council and Mother’s Kitchen. It was established to address food insecurity in the Darebin area and relies on the contribution of volunteers to run. As well as a free nutritious lunch, a variety of fresh produce is provided for people to take home after lunch.

How it is run?
Volunteers are involved in preparing, cooking, serving and cleaning. The meal plan is usually discussed through email one week before the serving day. We are always looking for more volunteers.
