Featured Charity: Bill’s Bag Lunches


In support of our local community in Rock Bay, Bill’s Bag Lunches provides nutritious and delicious bag lunches on Fridays to the street community centred around CoolAid’s Rock Bay Landing.

Inspired by conversations with his young daughter about the reasons some people end up living on the street, Bill decided to give her a more human experience by making bag lunches and delivering them together. The lunches include a sandwich, drink, apple, and chips. Being a truly rewarding experience for both Bill and his daughter, Bill decided to develop this into a weekly program that is being supported in partnership with CoolAid Society.

There has been a lot of support for this initiative with many local Rock Bay businesses, individuals and residents getting involved. This list includes, but is not limited to:

Aaron Bergunder
Discovery Coffee
Empire Donuts
Gabriel Ross
Hoyne Brewery
The Number Creative
Rock Bay Business Community
Rock Bay Market
United Centennial Church
Working Culture Bread

As with all our Charities of the Month, proceeds from the sale of tasters at the Growler Station (at the brewery), as well as the donations we collect, will be given to this awesome and important group of folks.
