Vital Connection is an essential community meals program that provides a hot three-course vegetarian meal three nights per week to the homeless and disadvantaged in Brisbane’s CBD. It is a service that has been built up over 21 years and is well-known amongst other social support providers and those who regularly use its service. It not only provides nutritious food but it also creates a safe space for community to happen for those who have been marginalised in our society. Regardless of religion, ethnic background, or gender orientation, everyone can feel at home with Vital Connection.

One gentleman by the name of Matthew Poulsen has been a long-time client of Vital Connection. He always has a jovial spirit when comes to get his meal, sometimes brining his bag of tricks like juggling balls to entertain everyone.

When asked one evening what he thought of Vital Connection, he was full of praise. “I always try to remind myself that they don’t have to be here, they don’t have to be feeding us, but they do it anyway.”

Stories like Matthew Poulsen help to encourage us to keep giving, even when you don’t think you are making a difference. The truth is that we are and our faithfulness will speak for itself.
