Our Story

One Meal – It Makes a Difference is a not for profit community organisation that helps to feed, clothe and support the homeless and underprivileged.

One Meal was founded December in 2014 when a group of friends came together to give back to the community with a one-off street service at Green Park in Sydney to provide “One Meal” to the needy at Christmas.

A month later they were back again and One Meal – It Makes a Difference was born.

From these simple beginnings and in a few short years One Meal has grown into an organisation that provides hundreds of meals to the needy each week across Sydney. Our meal service patrons are provided with breakfast packs to take away and further assisted where possible with swags, sanitary packs, toiletries, clothing items, blankets, etc.

Further support is delivered directly to struggling families with more than forty food hampers containing fresh food and grocery items distributed each week.

Colin Fassnidge has been an avid supporter of One Meal and his restaurant 4/14 regularly donates meals and joins services.

In addition to meal services, our recently established One Meal Medical and One Meal Pathways programs are further providing for the growing numbers of homeless, destitute, impoverished and underprivileged people in our community.

Our Mission is to provide healthy nutritious meals and a range of human services to the homeless, destitute, impoverished and underprivileged people in our community and to assist in advancing their well-being, outlook on life and prospects for future independence – and to do so with strong ethics and integrity.

We seek to provide value for our sponsors. We respect our people and those to whom we provide. We value and promote community and positive relationships between individuals.

One Meal survives through the generosity of a great many volunteers and a number of individual and business sponsors. Our services currently span Sydney, from Macarthur through to the Northern Beaches, with many locations in-between. Our organisation is growing with work underway to secure a number of new services.
