Vinnies Soup Vans

Vinnies operates five soup van services throughout metropolitan Melbourne that feed over 879 people every night.

Vinnies can work with you to provide meaningful employee volunteering experiences as part of our Soup Van Program operations that are educational, rewarding and give your employees an insight into homelessness in Melbourne.

We have a full day program which involves food preparation in the afternoon and food distribution at night.

Our recommended corporate volunteer group size is six people.

For your volunteer experience, Vinnies will provide:

  • A dedicated team leader to supervise the volunteers 
  • Trained volunteers to buddy and mentor  your employees during their experience
  • A comprehensive introduction on homelessness and the soup vans so your employees understand the importance of the work they are doing
  • A complete OH&S briefing
  • A summary of your experience including pictures of your employees in action
