Rosebud Soup Van

Rosebud Soup Van

On 1 July 2017, Mary’s Van, a not-for-profit organisation, joined the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria to become the seventh Soup Van Operation as the Rosebud Soup Van. Mary's Van has worked locally in the Rosebud community since August 2013, offering a warm evening meal, friendly smile and conversation to people experiencing homelessness or disadvantage. 

The Rosebud Soup Van will provide approximately 60 meals each Wednesday evening to people in need. This is made possible through the generous support of volunteers, sponsors, donors and suppliers.

Who can access the Soup Van?

The Rosebud Soup Van is a free service available to anyone in the Peninsula area. We support people who face disadvantage or those who are experiencing homelessness.
