Heart & Soul Group relies heavily on individuals, groups and corporations volunteering their time and skills to help us service the community attending our free food markets.
We have a range of team building and corporate volunteering, sponsorship and fundraising activities that will inspire your team to strengthen your business, while having a meaningful effect on the lives of vulnerable South Australians.
Roll up your sleeves with your work crew or members of your club in our corporate volunteering program. A few hours of your time and energy in one of our distribution points will be greatly appreciated. In teams of up to 10 people, there will be bread and bakery items to be sliced and packed plus fruit and vegetables to be bagged. Then, behold the magic you have created as we open the doors to hundreds of people eagerly awaiting the delicious food on offer.
The fully tax-deductible cost of our corporate volunteering program is $30 per person for four hours.
Financial contributions to Heart & Soul Group keep our refrigerated vehicles running to collect fresh produce for our free food markets. We also need to purchase bags for bakery items, and cleaning products to ensure our market halls consistently meet food safety standards.
Your sponsorship of Heart & Soul Group’s free food markets will create significant benefits for at-risk South Australians.
