With desserts as delectable as ours it simply would not do to have even one mouthful go to waste. Wherever possible we donate surplus desserts to several extremely worthy causes.
We have a long established relationship with the Sacred Heart Mission in St Kilda and have donated thousands of portions of desserts to help feed the hungry and disadvantaged. We give annually to the Variety Children’s Christmas Party, putting a big smile on the faces of disadvantaged and special needs children. We also happily donate our desserts to OzHarvest and Foodbank who rescue food from businesses and deliver it to hundreds of charities across Australia.
We encourage all our staff to give charitably and one of our initiatives is for a company-wide donation to Feed Melbourne’s annual fundraising appeal. Over the course of a week our staff are invited to donate their lunch money to this worthy cause. We then match their donations dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of our collection.
In 2016 our Packing Room Team Leader suggested that instead of our usual Kris Kringle we all donate a gift to the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal. We hope that this is a tradition that continues for many years to come.
