Do you know Fred?
Fred’s Van is a St Vincent De Paul’s service that provides the comfort of a warm, nutritious meal for those experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness and marginalisation.
Fred’s Van operates across 10 sites in Adelaide and regional SA.
See the timetable below for a Fred’s Van near you!
We met a guy called Alan, who lives in a Housing SA property in Kilburn and attends Fred’s Van at Kilburn Community Centre, who tells us:
“They [the van] come here every Thursday evening and feed us a 3 course cooked meal, plus we get a free goodie bag of food to take home afterwards. I come to get a good, nutritious meal, plus a meet new people, catch-up with old and regular friends and then I go home happy!”
If you want to get involved more with Fred’s Van, perhaps by volunteering, or recommending the service to family member or friend – visit https://www.vinnies.org.au/page/Get_Involved/Become_a_volunteer/SA/Freds_Van/
