Eat Up

Sep. 4, 2019

Staff from Mitsui’s Sydney office recently got together to make sandwiches for hungry kids. They joined with Eat Up, a not for profit organisation that provides school lunches to students who would otherwise go without. These include welfare dependent children, children affected by drug and alcohol abuse and newly arrived refugees.

Mitsui Administration Coordinator, Yukiko Hennessy said the activity was fun and the group was very productive.

“It was great to work together to fill some hungry tummies. Our goal was to make 1,000 sandwiches within an hour. We surpassed this target making over 1,100 sandwiches,” Yukiko said.

By providing a school lunch to some of the most vulnerable children in our community, Eat Up hopes to help children take advantage of learning opportunities and succeed in education.
