Our Vision

“We envision a world where no child goes to bed hungry and where the potential of every young mind is unlocked.

Kitchen aims to be the driving force behind positive change by delivering nutritious meals and hygiene packs, hope, compassion, and the tools necessary for children to rise above adversity. 

Together, we aspire to create a society where every child, regardless of background, can grow, learn, and dream without hunger or despair.”

Our Mission

“At Kids Kitchen, our mission is to nourish children’s bodies, minds, and spirits facing homelessness and poverty. 

Through our mobile food delivery program, we strive to provide essential sustenance and hygiene to every child living in the cycle of poverty. 

We believe every child deserves a healthy start and the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their circumstances.”

About Kids Kitchen

Kids Kitchen emerged from a simple yet profound realisation: the pressing need for a straightforward service that proves effective and creates a tangible difference in the lives of children navigating homelessness and poverty. Our journey commenced with recognising that even the most basic acts of kindness can wield a transformative influence on a child’s future trajectory. Nourishing Melbourne, Envisioning a Nationwide Impact: Based in Melbourne, Kids Kitchen is committed to serving the local community, providing nourishing food, including fruits and hot meals, and essential hygiene packs to needy children. We are committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of local children. However, our vision extends far beyond the city limits. With ambitious expansion plans, Kids Kitchen aspires to replicate its model of compassionate service across the country, reaching children in various regions facing similar challenges.

Our People

Our People: Kids Kitchen was founded by Simon and Paris Florrimell, individuals who passionately believe that anyone can contribute in service to others. Their vision sparked the creation of Kids Kitchen, and their commitment to positively impacting the lives of children facing adversity continues to inspire the heart of our organisation.

Diverse and Values-Driven Committee:

Today, Kids Kitchen is propelled forward by a dedicated committee comprised of a diverse range of individuals who share a common set of values and a deep-seated desire to make a difference in the lives of children everywhere. Our committee members bring unique perspectives, skills, and experiences, contributing to the richness of our organisation. United by a shared vision, they work collaboratively to guide and support Kids Kitchen’s mission.

The Kids Kitchen truck

The Kids Kitchen Truck is a fully equipped mobile pantry on wheels, ensuring that essential items, especially nutritious meals, reach children in need wherever they are. It’s not just about providing sustenance; it’s about delivering hope and support directly to their doorstep.

Stocked with refrigerators, the Kids Kitchen Truck allows us to deliver fresh produce, ready-to-eat meals, and everyday necessities. It’s a lifeline for those facing food insecurity, ensuring no child goes to bed hungry.

The Kids Kitchen Truck is a testament to the incredible impact that can be achieved through anonymous generosity. Our supporter’s belief in our mission has translated into a tangible vehicle for change, driving our commitment to uplifting communities.

We’re not stopping here; we’re now gearing up for the next chapter – the Hygiene Truck Project.

This new initiative aims to provide even more comprehensive support by offering showers, haircuts, and general hygiene services to the same kids we serve with our Kids Kitchen Truck.
