Hutt St Centre’s Chef, Peter says the donation from Detpak couldn’t come at a better time because sustainable packaging is becoming more difficult to source during the pandemic.
“With current COVID restrictions, we’re able to provide sit-down meals as well as takeaway food packs for people experiencing homelessness.
“If restrictions change, we need to be ready to shift from sit-down dining to a full takeaway meal service at a moment’s notice. But we don’t want to compromise our commitment to sustainability.
“This generous donation from Detpak ensures people experiencing homelessness can enjoy fresh, nutritious meals out of packaging for real change.
“Having two young kids at home makes me very conscious of our impact on the environment.
“In my role as Kitchen Manager at Hutt St Centre, I’ve been focused on improving our sustainability through recycling and eco-friendly packaging.
“It’s a simple change that makes a big difference for the environment,” Peter said.
