The Winsome and Lismore Soup Kitchen will produce more than 25,000 meals for the homeless and disadvantaged this coming year, thanks to a new $6,600 oven donated by The Honda Foundation and Ireland Honda.

Chairman of The Honda Foundation, Mr. Stephen Collins, is delighted with the donation’s timing, with the new oven arriving the same day the existing one broke down. “It’s great to know the arrival of the new oven from The Honda Foundation meant that not a day of meals was missed for those who depend on the kitchen’s services.”

The Winsome and Lismore Soup Kitchen has been running for over 26 years, providing disadvantaged people in the local community with food and shelter. Their team of 55 dedicated volunteers operate from the former Winsome Hotel in Bridge Street, North Lismore, ensuring regular meals and accommodation is provided for up to 18 marginalised men, 365 days a year.

Ms. Mieke Bell, President of Lismore Soup Kitchen, expressed her thanks to The Honda Foundation and its contribution to the livelihood of its charitable cause. “It is amazing that organisations like The Honda Foundation allow us to provide essential services for our patrons and I am thrilled that we can continue to support them.”

The Honda Foundation aims to provide assistance to local communities and foster goodwill among Honda Australia, Honda Motor Vehicle Dealers and the public. It draws funding from Honda Dealers and Honda Australia.

The Honda Foundation’s Honda Heroes loan vehicle program supports charitable organisations through a fleet of loan vehicles, assisting with activities for the disadvantaged, disabled or those suffering from illness.
