Morehead Meals is the beginning of a multi-levelled social enterprise connecting our community through affordable, ethical, healthy and delicious pre-made fresh and frozen meals. Our meals can be collected daily anytime directly from the Drop In Centre in South Townsville or delivery is available to homes and business within 20km’s of the CBD, minimum order $30 and a delivery fee of $5, or if in the outer suburb’s delivery is $8. Please place your order by 2 pm Tuesday for delivery on Thursday or Friday.

By purchasing meals from us 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 are helping someone in need?

Money from each meal purchase will be reinvested back into Morehead Meals to assist us to grow the enterprise to provide opportunities for homeless and long-term unemployed in our community to gain the necessary skills and confidence to improve their employability.


Our meals are $8 each or 5 for $35, or if you hold a concession card, meals are $7 each or 5 for $30. If you need assistance with payments, please speak with our friendly team.
