There’s no doubting Taree Community Kitchen’s volunteers and donors provide an exceptional service. Since CatholicCare took over the operation in 2015, 10,000 meals have been served. CatholicCare recently invited Deputy Premier of NSW, John Barilaro, and Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, along to celebrate this special milestone… and they made it a party to remember!

For many of us it’s a joyous time, celebrating the birth of Christ and encompassing family traditions, celebrations with friends, gift-giving and the sharing of food. However, for the 10,000 children and young people living in Permanency Support Programs (foster care) in Newcastle, the Hunter and Central Coast, it can be a very different story.
