The CoVid-19 Employee Assistance Directive (CoVid-19 E.A.D) was created in the wake of the collapse of the hospitality industry due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The initiative produces a range of chef-cooked, pre-packaged meals which are then distributed via contact-less delivery (within 20km radius of the Melbourne CBD). All meals are free of charge.

Our team of volunteers cook, pack, and deliver 2,000–3,000 meals per week to unemployed hospitality workers, offering some relief and support in the form of nourishing meals and essential care packs.

If you want to support other initiatives like us, who feed people in need, please donate to Scarf, OzHarvest or FareShare.

Thanks to our auspice relationship with Scarf, all direct deposit donations to CoVid-19 E.A.D over $2 are fully tax deductible and a receipt will be provided following your donation.
