    The event at South Melbourne market was promoted on here and they ran out within an hour.

    Please only claim this freebie if you're really genuinely in need of help.

      Well said, also they should have charity box or something for people to contribute what ever they can or if they can…

      • Kind of similar to the Bon Jovi Soul Foundation

    Please people only use this service if you are actually in need, if you're not in need and are just looking for a freebie grow the (profanity) up

    • Serious question, wouldn't the truly needy lack an address anyway?

      • +3

        Not necessarily. There are plenty of people living below the poverty line with a roof over their heads.

    Hot Take: If you're on OzBargain you don't need this.

    I sorta feel that services for the needy don't belong on OzBargain? It's not a bargain, it's charity.

      Agree… however this post could lead to a person who is really in need for food.. or our fellow ozB members can point out the needy to Hare Krishna Food 🤷‍♂️

    I'm very uncomfortable with this being posted here. On one hand if it helps with visibility for the needy to know this service exists, great. On the other hand I strongly suspect his would contribute to abuse by those who aren't needy.

    I'll just echo the calls from others. Do not take advantage of this if you aren't in genuine need. It doesn't sound like they have more supply than current demand.

    Terrific thing to do .. and their food is good as well .. I am definitely a carnivore but Hari Krishna food even impresses me .
