Alex Makes Meals NSW

While the COVID-19  situation may be winding down for most Australian's, the struggle of those fighting on the frontline will continue for months to come.

This is the NSW campaign, for the national campaign, click here 


As we approach the end of our nation's quarantine, the work of our doctors, nurses, cleaners and scientists is only just beginning. In order to ensure our economy can restart without additional outbreaks, these frontline staff will have to work harder than ever.

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've only just started.

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.

Food Insecurity

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.

Meals produced by us cost less than 5 dollars a serving. Produced either in house or through local establishments. Donate more than $1,000 dollars and your name will appear on every meal your donation funds.

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.
