Homeless can enjoy a good meal and company on a Sunday

PASTOR Lyn Borthistle of Gods No name church and volunteers set up a lunch for the homeless and struggling Tweed families in Goodwin Park Coolangatta on Sunday and will continue to feed people every week between 2.30 and 4.30.

With a three course menu of soup, rissoles with tomato, onions, sweet potato chips and peas and finishing off with an apple and pear crumble there is enough food for all.

Food and time is donated by volunteers and Pastor Borthistle said it's a way for some struggling people to get a good meal and great company on a Sunday afternoon, but more volunteers are always welcome.

When the food is good to go Pastor Borthistle said she pulls out a horn and blows to the wind.

"I've sounded the horn that the food is ready to the North, South, East and West," Pastor Borthistle said.

"Anyone that wants to come for a meal can come it's not only the homeless its families, it's for people that have homes but after paying rent they don't have enough for food."

One of the other main things Pastor Borthistle brings to the lunch is conversation, company and love.

"We talk we eat we dance we joke they are all family to me," she said.
