Social Bite

We provide food, support and real jobs to homeless people.

Story

Christmas is a time of year where we eat, drink and are merry with our families and friends. But it is also an incredibly lonely and harsh time for our homeless populations. 

On the 15 December myself and other business leaders will sleep out for a night in the cold to gain a very small insight of what our homeless community go through each day.  All funds raised will go towards the  building of a Social Bite Village development in 2017.  This project will provide 12 months of shelter for 20 people from a homeless background along with space for a vegetable garden, chicken coup and furniture workshop.

Any donation large or small would be greatly appreciated
for this fantastic cause. 
Thank you so much for your generosity and taking the time to visit my page.
