Winter Appeal has now finished

19 May 2019 - 31 Aug 2019

Jack and Brett are mates. They met at Coast Shelter’s Community Centre and often enjoy a meal and a chat at Laurie’s Table. Both Brett and Jack live alone and the social aspect of the restaurant is just as, if not more, important to them than the hot meals they receive. Talking to people, watching the television with others and being surrounded by activity helps stave off loneliness.

They are unanimous about the food served in the restaurant. “The food is always good quality,” says Brett. “Everyone is welcome,” Jack nods in agreement.

Brett and Jack agree that there should be more places like Laurie’s Table to help out the ever-increasing number of people unable to keep pace with the rapidly rising costs in our current housing affordability crisis.
