ALEX MAKES MEALS IS NOW NATIONAL
Thanks to the incredible work of the AMM team, we have developed robust frameworks to expand into every state. We are working with local businesses to prepare and deliver high-quality meals to those who are sacrificing everything to keep our loved ones safe.
In the last 12 months, 5 million people in Australia have struggled to put a meal on the table and the pandemic certainly has not helped that situation. We started helping just frontline worker but are in a position to help a lot more, we make delicious, nutritious meals to those that need it.
HOW WE WORK?
We have professional and experienced chefs who volunteer their time and kitchens, making meals every day for those who need it. Our meals have been delivered to hospitals, pathology clinics, hostels.
This makes what we do at AMM more important than ever. In the past month, our team has sent our almost 10,000 meals to those most crucial in attempts to alleviate the virus's impact.
We take food safety and handling very seriously, having procedures that go above and beyond requirements. We provide fresh, restaurant-quality meals, made by professional chefs in fully accredited kitchens. With combinations of wholesale and donated produce prepared by some of the chefs in the state, we are able to deliver as many high-quality meals as possible to those on the frontline of COVID-19.
HOW THIS STARTED?
Alex Dekker is a 20-year-old Monash University science student. When the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, his life turned upside down. He was unable to go back home and visit his immunocompromised parents. During a phone called with his sister, a doctor working in the COVID-19 clinic at Monash Medical Centre, she let slip that she had nothing but a muesli bar to sustain her for her 15-hour shift. Alex decided to make a tray of lasagne for his sister. Realising there were likely many others like his sister without the same kind of support network, he posted on Facebook asking if anyone on the pandemic frontline would like some free delivered meals. After an incredible public response, this initiative grew to accommodate.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
We started to alleviate the pressure on our healthcare system, we have broadened our reach to ending food insecurity in Australia.
