Free home made meals available at The Cottage Kitchen from next week

·

The Greek community of Saint Nectarios Greek Orthodox Parish in Burwood are set to launch ‘The Cottage Kitchen’ next week to provide free home made meals to those in need due to COVID-19.

The Cottage can be found at 5 Burleigh Street, Burwood, and will be open every Tuesday from 12 pm to 1.30 pm. The program has been made possible with the help of a $5000 grant offered to the Parish by Multicultural NSW.

“We wanted to start The Cottage Kitchen for a while as the pandemic has created a harsh economic and social environment, making life challenging for many in the community,” Secretary of the Greek Orthodox Parish and Community of Burwood and District, Christina Efthymiades, tells The Greek Herald.

“But we had limited resources until we received the grant from Multicultural NSW. It’s such a great initiative that has helped us address needs in the local community.”

Whilst the program is a pick up service, meals can also be delivered to Parishioners within the Parish and Community boundaries who have mobility issues.

Funding for the service is expected to last for approximately three months but depending on need and support from Parishioners, the program may be extended.

The Greek Welfare Centre in Newtown and the NSW Greek Orthodox Community in Lakemba also received the $5000 grants.

For further enquiries on The Cottage Kitchen please contact Father George Liangas on 0415 124 709‬.
