If there’s anything that will get a crowd, it’s the sure-fire, 10/10, Aussie-as sausage sizzle!
No fluff, not fancy additions, just sauce, the optional onion, a smile from the guy at the Barbie & a kind yarn with the money handler.
It was this Aussie institution (the sausage sizzle), and a fantastic community organisation in Port Lincoln the “Community House” that provides an op shop, free meals, free food packs, a men’s shed, garden and eventually a HOUSE for the disadvantaged.
In the past ten years it bought a house for the homeless, and also a take-away shop “The Pantry” to provide jobs for those who need them most.
Currently in the Eyre Peninsula there continues to be a housing shortage, and Linda Davies (Manager of Community House) in an effort to provide shelter for more people is considering selling their take-away shop.
“The Pantry” has provided a foot in the door to paid employment for 41 people since Community House bought it three-and-a-half years ago, including people who had never had a job, some with disabilities, and others fresh from jail terms.
Allocating resources to where they feel it’s needed most.
