Berwick Soup Van

Berwick Soup Van

The Berwick Soup Van operation began on 2 September 2009 and visits locations in the areas of Berwick, Cranbourne, Hampton Park and Narre Warren.

This soup van offers food, social connection, and referral pathways out of homelessness and poverty, to people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness and disadvantage.

Last year our 174 volunteers provided 9,364 meals.

Based at a kitchen in Beaconsfield and operating three nights per week, this Soup Van Operation provides support at boarding/rooming houses, social housing, residential locations and public street stops. Volunteers at this Operation are on a monthly roster.  

Who can access the Soup Van?
