Providing 600 Gourmet meals to Melbournians in need of some extra pampering this Fathers Day. Nominate a worthy recipient, donate to our campaign, or sign up to help send love and nourishment to those in these difficult times of restrictions.
Foothills Community Care and Red Coral Seafood have partnered together to provide a free Father’s Day feast this year with our The Big Fathers Day Drive 2021.
This coming Fathers Day will be different in so many ways to any other time, as we are in restrictions and lockdown, isolating, distancing ourselves and not able to come together and celebrate with loved ones like many normally would.
We have come together with charity groups, Melbourne businesses and our amazing volunteers to deliver meals and hampers to Melbournians experiencing social isolation and hardship in the outer eastern suburbs this Father’s Day.
Our special Big Father’s Day Drive 2021 is not only for dads, will offer locals in the outer easter suburbs of Melbourne* fresh gourmet cooked meals and hampers, either delivered or picked up to bring some extra cheer and love.
*Area includes the Dandenong Ranges, Knox and nearby areas, see our map on the nomination form for a full list of suburbs delivered to.
These special Father’s Day meals and hamper packs are not just available for fathers but for ANYONE in the outer eastern area this father’s day.
To receive a Father’s day meal and special hamper pack for yourself and your family, or to nominate someone else for one, then please click the button above to go to our registration form.
Meals will be delivered freshly cooked, by our team of dedicated volunteers on Saturday September 4, the day before Father’s Day. They can then be reheated and served for a special Father’s Day feast.
Our team of top chefs have put together a great menu that includes:
- Roast Lamb, seasonal vegetables with a cheese sauce
- Roast Lamb, seasonal vegetables (DF GF)
- Barramundi Curry, seafood dish, (DF GF)
