OUR STORY

Alex Dekker started Alex Makes Meals as a Uni student during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020. Alex couldn’t visit his immunocompromised parents or his sister, who was working at a hospital.  

Alex noticed the stress his sister was under and decided to make a meal for her and her workmates. His lasagne was a hit, so Alex kept on cooking for more people.

Alex Makes Meals was born. 

Alex Makes Meals is not just a one-man operation now. It is a movement driven by dedicated volunteers and your generous monthly donations. 

Alex Makes Meals’ new objective is to provide warm, tasty meals for homeless and disadvantaged youth.

OUR OBJECTIVE

Alex Makes Meals’ new objective is to provide warm, tasty meals for homeless and disadvantaged youth. 

19,400 children under the age of 14 were homeless on the night of the 2016 Australian Census.

A homeless child shouldn’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from. 

A hungry child can’t function at school or in life.
 
Join us and help provide food and security to children in need.

OUR IMPACT

Alex Makes Meals has grown from a single-man operation to a team of 80+ dedicated volunteers in just one year. 

We make 3000+ meals a week on average and deliver to 50+ locations.

We have truly made an impact and improved the lives of those suffering from food insecurity. 

But we’re just getting started.
