Christmas boost for Chinchilla's Kup of Kindness

18 Dec 2019

CS Energy is helping Chinchilla’s Kup of Kindness provide vital food relief to disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community by providing $24,000 in sponsorship for their food trailer project.

Kup of Kindness received the funds in the latest round of CS Energy’s community sponsorships program, which provides financial support for initiatives that benefit the local community.

CS Energy Kogan Creek Power Station General Manager Phil Matha was on hand last week for the commissioning of the food trailer, which will provide free nutritious meals to those in need.

“I was surprised to learn how much of a problem food insecurity is for many people in Queensland,” Mr Matha said.

“According to the Foodbank Hunger Report, there has been a 22 per cent increase in the number of people seeking food relief from charities in the last 12 months alone.

“The Kup of Kindness food trailer will not just provide nutritional meals to those in need; perhaps most importantly, it will offer connection, and show those doing it tough that their community truly cares.

“I congratulate the Kup Of Kindness Committee for your dedication to delivering this project, and for your ongoing service to the local community.”
