CafeSmart organiser Streetsmart Australia has provided more than 5400 meals to vulnerable people during the coronavirus pandemic through its SmartMeals program. StreetSmart Australia says charity meals programs are shut across the country. With gatherings restricted and older volunteers protecting their health, food security for vulnerable Australians is an emerging challenge. At the same time restaurants and cafés are closing or reducing hours. This is making people with limited resources vulnerable to poverty, hunger, and homelessness.
