Why are ready-to-eat meals so important to those in the community who do not have a regular place to live or are going through hard times?
A box full of vegetables is food, but only if the person or family receiving it has the facilities to prepare it. Potatoes, cauliflower, onions, parsnips, carrots and zucchini are all wholesome and nutritious foods, but by themselves are not a meal.
This same mix of vegetables is the basis for a soup that is a warming and nourishing meal. 
Loaves & Fishes Tasmania will take whatever food is available at the time from the food donated to SecondBite and cook that into a soup, pie, quiche or other meal.
Moreover, the frozen meal will last for months, not just a few days and can be reheated in a number of different ways.
Loaves & Fishes Tasmania might be doing the cooking, but it’s the farmers, processors, stores and individuals who donate the food who are the real heroes of the story.
