Ivory’s Rock Donates Soup For The Homeless

Ipswich Food Barn were delighted to receive 4000 litres of nutritious and delicious vegetable soup from Ivory’s Rock on Monday 18th September, 2017.  The soup will go to feed the homeless and is enough to feed the thirty to forty homeless people who receive food weekly from Ipswich Food Barn for a few months! Twelve containers of soup were handed over by Ivory’s Rock General Manager, David Ritchie, to Joel Murray, representing Community Compassion Ministries Ltd, who run the drop in centre.  The Christian charity helps disadvantaged people from Ipswich and surrounding areas, extending out to Laidley South and Boonah, Forest Lake and Inala.

It couldn’t have come at a better time as the Food Barn relies heavily on Food Bank Qld and Oz Harvest for their food and, with Oz Harvest diminishing it’s supply, they are looking for extra help to feed the homeless and financially disadvantaged people in the area.  The soup was excess stock from the Peak Organics shop at the recent Peace Event at Ivory’s Rock.  Peak Organics run the organic farm onsite at Ivory’s Rock and provided fresh produce, grocery items and soup at the event.  They sell fresh, organic produce to the community at their farm gate each Saturday morning.

Joel thanked Ivory’s Rock General Manager for the opportunity to work together and said “ I hope we can do something similar in the future”, whilst David Ritchie said “I’m glad we can support the Ipswich Food Barn and help them to feed the needy.  I wish them well in their endeavours and we are glad to help where we can.”
