RRT Supports COVID-19 Crisis with Food Boxes

The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) have stepped in to support people affected by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak by donating RRT’s signature Food Boxes to people in self-isolation. Lending a helping hand to people in crisis is at the heart of what we do at RRT, whether it is for people affected by fire, drought or a global pandemic, we see a need and find a way to support.

The RRT Food Boxes were originally designed in Australia to support families and young ones who have been affected by domestic violence. RRT saw a need a couple of weeks ago to provide these Food Boxes to those who are self-isolated for COVID-19. The Food Boxes, which are filled with non-perishable, long-life food, act as an emergency food bank, providing vital access to necessities whilst in isolation.

RRT served a hot meal, to first responders until 3am Monday morning, leaving the leftovers with Central Fire Command to help them power through the early morning hours.
