Fred's Van

The Society’s 10 Fred’s Van services provide comfort and a warm, nutritious meal for people experiencing disadvantage or homelessness, or who are at risk of homelessness.

Operating from eight sites across Adelaide and two regionally in Port Lincoln and Port Pirie, this emergency service is delivered by more than 650 committed volunteers. In 2019 we provided 42,000 meals.

Vinnies Fred’s Van supports some of the most vulnerable people in the community who are experiencing a range of issues such as poverty, homelessness, social isolation or unemployment. Those forced to live rough are able to access Fred’s Van for a hot meal, blankets, donated books and social connection. Many people served by this key service are not homeless but struggling to make ends meet.
