OFFICIAL RELEASE 04/11/2017: The not-for-profit community aid organisation One Meal – It Makes A Difference launched in Blacktown this month, and is driving change in Western Sydney for the homeless and people in need with the help of the Australian Racing Drivers’ Club (ARDC).
One Meal – It Makes A Difference is a 100% volunteer based community organisation that helps to feed, clothe and support the homeless and underprivileged across Sydney, from Macarthur through to the Sutherland Shire and the Northern Beaches, and on Saturday November 4 it served up its first meals in Blacktown.
Founded in 2014 with a one-off street service to provide “One Meal” to the needy at Christmas, One Meal – It Makes A Difference 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 clothing items, blankets, toiletries etc.
One Meal – It Makes A Difference works to foster community and positive relationships between individuals, and of course it relies on the generosity of a great many volunteers as well as a number of individual and business sponsors. The expansion of One Meal into the Blacktown area would not have been possible without the amazing support from the local business community.
“Being the operator of Sydney Motorsport Park, which is part of the Western Sydney Parklands, the Australian Racing Drivers Club is always proud to be able to support our local community,” says ARDC CEO Glenn Matthews.
“One Meal is just one of the many ways we can give back to the community, and our new on-site fuel bowsers allow us to provide the fuel for the One Meal van as a means of supporting this great initiative.”
One Meal – It Makes A Difference is also grateful to Heartland Hyundai, who have generously provided a Hyundai i-Load van to run the service, and Right Property Group, a major sponsor for the Western Sydney operations.
