expired (QLD, NSW, WA, SA) Free Meal for Those Doing It Tough on Xmas Day @ Jamie Oliver Italian Restaurants
Similar to this post.
Also an opportunity for those who'd like to volunteer to help at these events.
Volunteers must be 16 years and over, and will be required to assist with a number of jobs including table setting, food running, table clearing, dishwashing, playing Santa and welcoming guests on the day. Experience in the hospitality industry is not required.
For the first time across Australia, Oliver is opening all of his restaurants on Christmas Day to host a free charity lunch.
Every Jamie’s Italian restaurant in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth will be open from noon to 4pm. The day will be a non-alcoholic event.
“We want to fill them with people that can come in for free, people that will be lonely, people that might be homeless, and people in need,” he said.
“For that, we are going to be working with local charities, my foundation which is The Ministry of Food in Australia which is an incredible set-up that I’m so proud of, with the help from The Good Foundation.
“We are also asking for volunteers, so for those people that would be interested, come down to Jamie’s Italian and volunteer. It’s going to be loads of fun I promise you. If you know someone who is going to be lonely, or homeless we are going to spoil them. We are going to spoil them with beautiful food, comfort food, and loads of love, and we are going to laugh a lot."
