Curb Hunger is dedicated to alleviating hardship through providing some of the most essential items to the homeless – one curb at a time!
We believe that everyone is entitled to life’s most basic necessities. We specialise in providing vending machines, accessible 24/7 and supplying essentials such as food, water, hygiene & sanitary items and warm clothing to the homeless. We also ensure that the users of our machines are in regular contact with local support services and professionals who can help them in working towards a longer-term plan of getting off the streets.
