About 300 Blankets & Soul Kitchen

300 Blankets was borne out of the basic principles of compassion, respect and care towards all people in our community.

In 2012, two volunteers decided that something had to be done to curb the shortage of blankets they identified on their rounds of Melbourne’s streets. After food and water, blankets were the most sought-after product and there was never enough. Driven to make a difference, they decided to raise enough funds to purchase 300 blankets for those living on the streets in the city.

Following a study conducted by Rough Sleeping in Victoria, 300 Blankets decided it was time to launch Soul Kitchen in Preston allowing them to aid those who live in Northern Suburbs as well as the city!
