Morehead Meals is the beginning of a multi-levelled social enterprise connecting our community through affordable, ethical, healthy and delicious pre-made fresh meals. Our meals can be collected daily anytime directly from Althea’s Community Hub in South Townsville or delivery is available to homes and businesses with 20km’s of the Townsville CBD (delivery charges apply or pick up free from 2 locations) minimum order of $30.
Please place your order by 2 pm Tuesday, for a Thursday or Friday delivery (depending on your area).
By purchasing meals from Althea’s Community Hub you are directly contributing to a healthier, resilient, and more connected Townsville.
Althea Projects knows that human connection plays a massive role in all of our lives and through the Morehead Meals program we aim to connect with some of Townsville’s vulnerable population through the power of good food and conversation when delivering meals.
When you purchase meals wouldn’t it be nice to know that you’re helping someone in need?
Money from each meal purchased will be reinvested back into Morehead Meals to assist us to grow the enterprise to provide opportunities for the homeless and long-term unemployed in our community, to gain the necessary skills and confidence to improve their employability.
Morehead Meals standard pricing – $8 each or 5 for $35.
We also have concession prices – $7 each or 5 for $30.
If you need assistance with payments, please speak with our friendly staff.
