Frequently Asked Questions
What do you do at the Daily Bread?
- At soup kitchen, we serve a three course meal to the attendee’s at their table (so not really a soup kitchen at all!). The Daily Bread is not just about feeding people, it’s about connecting and we encourage volunteers to interact with attendee’s. If you feel like sitting and sharing a meal with the attendee’s then that is fine, The Daily Bread is as much about relationships as it is about serving food (but always make sure there are enough people to serve the food from the kitchen else there may be some hungry tummies who have to wait longer!).
What time do I have to be there?
- We encourage volunteers to be at the hall by 4.15pm until 6.15pm. This gives us enough time for set up and pack down.
Do I need a blue card?
You do need a blue card to volunteer at the Daily Bread. We have lots of children who are regular patrons at the Daily Bread. Our policy at Suncoast is that any volunteer who may come into contact with children is required to hold a blue card. Please see your team leader for a Blue Card application before you commence volunteering or email: [email protected]
Can I bring my kids?
- Unfortunately, no. The Daily Bread is not an appropriate place for kids to participate in as we deal with people with a range of social issues which doesn’t make it an ideal environment. At Suncoast we never let our kids in an environment where people do not hold blue cards, which includes the Daily Bread.
