Dine with a Heart May @ St Kilda and beyond
Restaurants, cafes and bars across St Kilda (and beyond) are joining forces with their diners to raise money to support Sacred Heart Mission’s Meals Program, providing hearty, free meals for up to 400 people every day of the year.
It costs the Mission $4 to provide a person with a meal. For the cost of a coffee, you could help to feed someone in need.
Check out the Mission’s calendar of events here and see how you can get involved!
