The Problem

For 37,715 homeless people in NSW, Christmas is a lonely and difficult time.

And while most kids look forward to Christmas all year, that's not the case for over 3,963 NSW children under the age of 12 who are homeless.

There are no presents under the tree, stuffed stocking or family lunch...

But there is Wayside Chapel.

Last December, a constant stream of homeless men, women and children walked through our doors at Wayside Chapel, in desperate need of food and support.

On Christmas Day, 800 men, women and children attend our community lunch every year. This is a special time when the homeless can enjoy a free meal (with all the trimmings) on Christmas day.

Because no one should go hungry at Christmas.

Wayside Chapel is one of a handful of organisations offering support for the homeless every single day and night over the Christmas period.

People turn to Wayside Chapel because we are open seven days a week, 365 days a year. We provide free meals on Christmas day.

Each month we open the doors and host community breakfasts, lunches and dinners, providing around 800 free meals with a sense of family.

Every day our low-cost cafés provide meals for as little as $2 - we believe in a hand up, not a hand out. These nutritious, delicious meals are made fresh, on-site and to order. We serve over 10,500 meals with love and dignity each month.

We are asking for your support to keep the kitchens cooking and our programs running over the Christmas and new year period.

We need to raise $350,000 to make sure homeless people are fed and supported during what can be a lonely and difficult time of year. Funds raised will go towards our Christmas Day Street Party and towards the cost of opening our programs and services throughout January so that no-one is left out.

You can Donate a Plate to Wayside Chapel

We're asking you to Donate a Plate and to keep homeless people fed and supported over the Christmas and new year period.

For just $25, you'll provide a meal with all the trimmings for a homeless person living on our streets.

  • $25 will provide one meal to feed a homeless person
  • $50 will feed a couple
  • $100 will feed a family of four
  • $250 will sponsor a table to feed 10 people

If you want to make your donation on behalf of a friend, family member or colleague, use the 'perks' option to receive a blank paper plate 'gift card', which we'll post to you. Share the plate in lieu of a gift this Christmas.

Plus...

Your name will be written on a plate at our Christmas Day Street Party to recognise your support to feed the homeless.

About Wayside Chapel

We are proud to have been providing unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets of Sydney since 1964. We see everyone as a person to be met, not a problem to be solved. We provide showers, clothing changes, low cost meals, accommodation support and much more.

We are able to do this thanks to the support of everyday Australians who believe in our mission and donate funds to help us keep doing what we do. People like you are donating or fundraising every day and helping us to open Wayside’s doors to the most vulnerable people in our community.
