Proudly serving those in need across Brisbane for over 50 years
Our volunteers pack our customised van with all the goodies of the day including a variety of sandwiches, fresh seasonal fruit, hot coffee, tea and milo and a selection of kindly donated treats.
Our team of kitchen volunteers prepare a selection of fresh sandwiches.
Our volunteer team drives to several inner city locations where we serve our friends.
It's not just about the coffee and food, but most importantly it's the kindness and understanding, the positive interaction and connection that we share with our homeless and disadvantaged friends.
"The van is an important gathering point for me and a great way for me to start the day. Beautiful hot coffee and sandwiches and a meeting place for friends."
"I know the service will be there for me everyday. It would have to be something really bad for them not to turn up. They are consistent and reliable. The volunteers have something come from within them. They love what they do and it shows."
"I've been using the service for about 20 years on and off. It's a very helpful service and you get to know everyone. It is its very own community which is important to me."
"They are kind to everyone. They talk to everyone. They do not discriminate. It is a very helpful service. The Brigade has been part of my daily life for the last 30+ years."
"The service stops me from doing crime as I know that I can get something to eat and drink. I appreciate the food, coffee, clothing and support that I have received over the past 15-20 years."
A $22.50 donation provides coffee, sandwiches and fruit daily to one of our disadvantaged friends for 5 days or just $31.50 for a full week.
With all of us working together, we can accomplish great things. To volunteer or contribute, send us a message. We will get back to you soon.
