Narooma Street Kitchen started in October 2019 as another branch to the Moruya Street Kitchen and Sydney’s 24/7 Street Kitchen & Safe Space Community. Meals and essential items are provided at the Kitchens FREE Community BBQ’s, which are held the last Thursday of every month.
Co-organiser Sarah told the Beagle "Our aim is to provide a service that compliments other services and charities in the local area. We want to encourage all ages, genders, cultures and income levels to attend our kitchen days. Doing it tough doesn’t discriminate! We can all encounter hard times at one stage or another.
"Being charitable is not a competition! We aim to compliment other services in the area. Not everyone can make it on certain days, or travel to where events are being held. Narooma Street Kitchen is another option for those out there who want a warm meal and company. Any items or food not used are given to other local charities and services.
"We aim to keep things simple and humble. Helping people should not be based on wanting attention, being in control, or “being the best” at charity."
"We are always looking for volunteers to provide meals and help on the day. If you are interested in assisting and making a difference in your community, please message us via the Narooma Street Kitchen facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/naroomastreetkitchen/

Sarah said "We are still chasing items essential to the running of the kitchen such as tea, coffee, takeaway containers and serving spoons. Please visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/naroomastreetkitchen/ for a full list of the items required."
"Narooma street kitchen provides a meal and essential items to those who need it. We are able to fill a void that not may services cater too. We aim to involve all ages, backgrounds, cultures and income levels. Everyone can do it tough sometimes. Everyone is welcome. Please come and join us."
