A hearty meal, kindness and company have been on the menu at St Brendan’s College for more than fourteen years as their Eddie’s Van Project soldiers on, providing meals and companionship to people in the Capricorn Coast community who may have fallen on hard times.
Operating every Thursday from 5:00pm to 5:45pm, 49 weeks of the year, from the St Vincent de Paul car Park in John Street, students from St Brendan’s College have volunteered their time since 2008 to serve and provide company to ‘clients’ who may visit for a one-off meal or come regularly for a hot meal, cuppa, and a chat.
St Brendan’s College modelled the project on similar projects run by Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) Colleges; the body of schools offering a Catholic education in the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice, the guiding organisation the College operates under.
With justice and service to the community the touchstones of the College, the Eddies Van also supports the development of the students, building their confidence and awareness of social responsibility.
The Eddies Van is owned, operated, and funded by St Brendan’s College with the support of local businesses who donate to this worthy cause.
