BYRON Bay's Liberation Larder will make sure no one misses out on Christmas lunch this year.
The volunteers, who provide meals for the community at the Fletcher Street Kitchen at the Byron Bay Community Centre, are putting on a special Christmas day lunch for anyone in need of a meal and company.
Lunch will be served at the Fletcher Street entrance from 12.30pm and a gold coin donation would be appreciated.
Larder members are calling for volunteers to help during what is a busy time of year, plus any food or monetary donations.
"It's a difficult time of year for many," said larder president Helen Hamilton.
"Many of our community members are without shelter, food, or company."
The larder will stay open throughout the festive season and will operate between Christmas and New Year.
Takeaway meals will be available between noon and 2pm each day in that period.
The Liberation Larder group, all volunteers, usually provides meals, bags of food, and outreach meals on Mondays and Thursdays from the Fletcher Street Kitchen of the Byron Bay Community Centre.
From 8.30am they sort and cook food donations in the kitchen to serve a meal at 12.30.
If you would like to volunteer or donate during this time, please call co-ordinator Rhonda Khong on 0431 523 310 or drop by the kitchen on Mondays or Thursdays before 2pm.
"We are urging everyone in the community to get involved this year," said Rhonda.
"A few Byron businesses have already committed to giving us Christmas donations, but we still are in need of gifts to give, and of course, volunteers to help us prepare and serve the meals," she said. "It's a big undertaking, but something that we feel very passionate about.
"No one in our community should be alone and hungry this Christmas."
An invitation is extended to anyone who may be having Christmas lunch on their own, to come and join with other folk at the Uniting Church Hall in Fingal Street, Brunswick Heads, from noon on Christmas Day.
This is an alcohol-free area but juices, as well as plum pudding, custard and ice-cream will be served.
Anyone going is asked to take a main meal to share.
