New food van means​ ​even more meals.

New food van means​ ​even more meals

We’re excited to report the delivery of a brand new food van. It will enable us to serve even more meals to our guests and stretch your donations further. The new van will build on the legacy of the old which served over 390,000 meals to the needy. It utilises airline-style, temperature controlled food trolleys which can be loaded in our Exodus Foundation kitchen then wheeled to the van and hydraulically stowed in place. The new food van was generously funded by Gary...

Give warm clothes & blankets ​for the homeless.

Give warm clothes & blankets ​for the homeless

Staying warm when you live on the streets is a challenge, especially when it rains and things get wet. That’s why we give warm clothes and blankets to the homeless and disadvantaged. During winter demand for warm clothes and blankets is understandably high, so we urgently need donations. We need track pants in large or extra-large size and single or double-sized blankets, but please remember: We can only accept new items – not used or second hand. Please call (02) 8752 4600...

Rev. Bill Crews Winter appeal.

Rev. Bill Crews Winter appeal

I’ve just returned from our mobile food van in the city where we give hot dinners to the homeless. Every...

Donating food for our guests

Donating food for our guests

We take the health of our guests seriously, serving healthy meals using good quality food products. We get fresh produce from a range of partners, but we also rely on people like you to donate tinned food to fill our emergency food parcels. To make it easy to understand what to give we use a traffic light system. Gifts marked with a green traffic light will be accepted, while those marked with a red traffic light cannot be used. Green light...

With your help we’re making this Easter even more special

With your help we’re making this Easter even more special

Easter is always a special time at The Exodus Foundation. It’s a time of hope. Today there are more homeless Australians and they feel more isolated. Doing something special for them at Easter is a great way of making them feel like they really do matter. On Maundy Thursday Rev. Bill Crews will wash the feet of our homeless guests, just as Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. “It’s humbling work, but for me it’s holy work too”, he said. And thanks to...
