Volunteer Your Time

We need people like you!

Thanks so much for clicking on this page!  The ECB team are committed to providing a nourishing breakfast to Brisbane’s homeless every day of the year, and as you can appreciate that’s no easy feat…  We need volunteers to help us keep the van out and on the road every morning, getting basic essentials to the people in our community who need it most.

How you can help?

It’s simple! We’ll induct you into the ECB and teach you how you can make a real difference.

  • Donate your time
    Spare an hour or two in our office making sandwiches and preparing meal packs for a day.
    Pick up donations from suppliers and drop them to our office.
    Join us on the front line, spend a morning on our van, delivering breakfast to those who would otherwise go hungry.
    Help with running repairs to our office or van – tradies assistance welcomed!
  • Donate food and clothing
    We kindly accept the generosity of people and organisations to help us feed our members, if you are in a position to assist with donations of any kind, we welcome your approach.  On occasions throughout the year we also do our best to supply care packs containing clothing and blankets to those who sleep rough – all donations welcomed.
