Hawkesbury Community Kitchen is turning 30 this year

Hawkesbury Community Kitchen has been providing meals, showers and clothes washing facilities to the homeless and disadvantaged for 30 years.

Volunteer Caleb West told the Gazette the group would be celebrating 30 years in September - a huge milestone for the Macquarie Street, Windsor facility, which is staffed entirely by volunteers.

"We're keen to get the word out because we've heard from a lot of people lately that they didn't know we were here," he said.

"We've been operating during COVID, and continuing to supply meals. We want people to understand where we are, what our services are - and if we get more people interested, we may be able to offer even more services [in the future]."

Hawkesbury Community Kitchen operates on a walk-in basis. They supply meals seven days a week - lunch and dinner from Monday to Friday (10am until 1pm; 6-7pm) with shower and washing machine facilities open during the lunch shift.

On Saturdays and Sundays, they offer brunch from 11am until 1.30pm.

Mr West came to volunteer at the kitchen through the Duke of Edinburgh program with his school.

"We've got about 50 volunteers ... they pitch in and help any way they can," Mr West said.

Hawkesbury Community Kitchen is at 38A Macquarie Street, Windsor.
