Meals from the Heart

Keeping families close

After a long and emotional day at the hospital, parents and carers rarely have the time, funds, or energy to cook a fresh and healthy dinner.

We invite you to step into the kitchen for a night to prepare fresh, nutritious meals for seriously ill children and their families.

This program provides the families staying at the South Brisbane House or Herston House with a delicious hot meal, three nights each week. Families find comfort in hearing laughter in the kitchen and enjoy a dinner that’s been served with a smile.

The Meals from the Heart Program is an incredible opportunity for corporate partners and community fundraising groups to step into our kitchen and make a meaningful difference for families; to make our House a home.
