52 Gifts

52gifts is the brainchild of Bake Share Care founder Michelle Symes.  Michelle will cook a different family a meal each week for the entirety of the year, 52 weeks.  It will culminate in a Christmas feast at the end of 2016.  The hope is that people in need; be it the elderly, the sick, someone who has just lost a loved one, or those with very little, walk away from this experience having felt spoilt.  52 Gifts received a community grant from Council to assist in delivering this important initiative.
