MEALS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We are honoured and humbled by all of our customer and staff support to get to where we are. We celebrate you all!
Together, we have built EATS up into a position where we are now able to focus on helping those who need it most. While we wish we could reach all corners of the world NOW we are starting with some remote communities, where no one else goes.
BALI CHAPTER: We help local Balinese people strengthen their economy by working, pro bono, with them build a 100% locally owned and operated tourism company, Bali with Locals.
Bali with Locals
When learning about the deaths of innocent children from preventable illness, like freezing to death from the cold, our hearts leapt into action. Even though we are born on the Sunshine Coast, we are on a mission to empower people out of generational poverty. These people are hard workers, competent workers and more than capable of being successful, they just don’t have the resources (money) and education to get going in the right direction. We believe to break the chains of generational poverty we need to break them as early as possible. Why wait until someone saves up their whole life to invest in a business (if they can)? We believe if we give them the mindset, skills and resources now then they have their wholes lives to thrive and help others.
We have a long history with South America having done projects for vulnerable communities there before. Now, because of COVID, things are even harder for people to survive and have their basic needs met.
It is extremely dire, it is life and death, meal to meal. Luckily, here in Australia, not as many experience this. We are blessed to have support for most people who need it and education and jobs for most people who want it. We are the lucky country, the Australian Dream.
Our first project outside of Australia is currently under construction in Peru, to serve the public our EATS menu, Peruvian style. We are building a fun, engaging environment while supporting those who have everything they need to be successful, except the money. We find this unfair. So we are creating the perfect balance between emergency help and long term help through education, empowerment AND food/housing aid.
EATS PERU – is a replica of EATS in Australia. We have replicated the menu, with a Peruvian twist, as well as bringing the Sunshine Coast vibe to Lima. Our goal is to franchise and all locations will provide assistance to those we work with to give free food and shelter, as well as a wage, so they can completely focus on taking themselves towards success.
SNAPSHOT OF WHAT WE DO
EMERGENCY FOOD AID
We donate meals to those who are facing some of the most challenging times of their life. We help people survive, so they can later thrive. The more meals that are sold at our EATS stores means more people helped. It is simple, yet effective.
We are working to offer the opportunity for those in Australia and Peru to gain education and referenced work experience through our free Certificate in Hospitality and Commercial Cookery and our free Barista training programs. This gives them the opportunity to more easily access employment or create a successful small business (which we can microfinance). They can become a successful cook, barista or manager in someone else’s business or start their own EATS with us. We also work with younger children and gift them educational resources to ensure they have knowledge and the mindset to strive for goals that will lead them out of generational poverty.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Our restaurants in Australia serve everyday classics at an accessible price, for every day people. They also provide a platform to empower people for long term self sustainability.
HOW WE CAN GROW
It starts with everyday people like you. When you buy a meal we create impact that lasts generations.
We want to sell more meals. We want to scale up so we can scale up our impact. You can help us do that by visiting our stores, or if you’re not close you can still help us grow by purchasing from our online store.
