A member of Australia's coalition government visited Our Big Kitchen at the Lubavitch's Yeshiva Centre in Bondi and made providing $100,000 to the charity a priority of a re-elected government.

Environment and Water Resources Minister Malcolm Turnbull applauded the work of Rabbi Dovid Slavin and his team of volunteers when he visited the center, which provides a commercial kitchen where local charities can store, prepare and serve meals to help feed hungry people in the community.

"Sharing a meal is a traditional way of bringing people together and giving people a sense of belonging," said Turnbull. "It is heart-warming to know volunteers and charitable organizations have opened the door of hope for people in need by welcoming them to eat at Our Big Kitchen or delivering a meal to their homes."

The kitchen at the Yeshiva Centre is used by many local charities, such as Anglicare and Meals on Wheels, and is available to support ambulance, fire, police and other emergency services.
