The foodvan operation which Jef Gambin and his merry team of volunteers worked tirelessly to make the most well known marginalised peoples food service has been placed at risk by an uncaring and bureaucratic government, to the dismay of the homeless and the applause of many so called homeless service charities. The State government installed their favourite charity,Exodus Foundation, as a paid contractor to fill the gap at a reputed cost of $55000 for one month. The issues regading this contractor have been covered elsewhere. In short, this contractor is providing a infrastructure heavy, light on food service, serving the same skimpy meals they are notorious for.

 However, we must look at the very real possibility that JEF doesnt get their resources back, and Exodus close the service( which is probably the governments end game. So we, Sydneys homeless, must act to replace the service ourselves.
