Businesses band together for Random Acts of Dinner

Three local businesses impacted by the Coronavirus lock down have come together to bring a smile to the faces of residents through the delivery of delicious food.

HSG At the Gardens, Event Networx and Picture Perfect Decorators owners said they wanted to bring some positivity back into the community by creating Random Acts of Dinner.

“Random Acts of Dinner is about purchasing a meal for someone who is doing it tough right now,” Dion Taylor, HSG At the Gardens said.

“Purchase the meal online and we will deliver it to your nominated person with a special note.

“This is about showing people you care.”

The group is urging residents to support those in the community by showing love with “Random Acts of Dinner”.

With the first few deliveries already rolled out, the group said they planned on sharing stories that go with them via their social media page “Random Acts of Dinner”.

Ainsley Gatley, Event Networx, said she chose two friends in the travel industry who were doing it tough.

“My heart goes out to our travel agents at the moment,” she said.

“They are under extreme pressure to help their clients and it is such a time of uncertainty.

“They are working long thankless hours and these meals were a great way to acknowledge them and let them know we care”.

Chris Murrin, Picture Perfect Decorators, said she chose her neighbour who was responsible for the health and well-being of staff and patients at a local private hospital.

“I just wanted to make sure she was eating properly and looking after herself,” she said.

Random Acts of Dinner
Random Acts of Dinner provides delicious meals that can be delivered to someone in need.

If you choose to participate in Random Acts of Dinner, HSG At The Gardens will throw in a special dessert and deliver with a smile.

“Our health care industries are doing it tough, my industry with cafes in restaurants are still coming to terms with the closures, small businesses have uncertain futures,” Dion said.

“Jobs have been lost. What if we all ordered one dinner and paid it forward. Wouldn’t that be something positive to hold on to?”

In the community spirit the Gin Gin Community Bank, Branch of Bendigo Bank have come on board to assist with the delivery of meals into our rural neighbourhoods of Gin Gin, Childers, Biggenden and surrounds.

Keep an eye out for Kel, the happy delivery driver, as she spreads the joy of Random Acts of Dinner.
