The Big Umbrella invites companies to feed the homeless at Flinders St Melbourne as a team building experience that will stay with you for life.
What to expect
Volunteering to feed the homeless (our friends on the street) is an extremely rewarding experience and on the night you can expect to meet and feed anywhere from 150 to 200 people.
Some may find that it takes them out of their comfort zone and could also be a little confronting. It is important to remember just how much your actions and time are improving the quality of life of the people you meet as it grounds you and brings a new sense of appreciation for your life.
What the night involves
Each night will require a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 15 people. Unfortunately due to our OH/S and insurance policy we cant take anyone under the age of 18. The roles of the night will vary from preparing and serving food to just hanging out and having a chat with the homeless/ friends from the street.
