Changing the face of homelessness.
The OnTrack Foundation Inc. is made up of a voluntary Board that operates without any compensation to its members. That means 100% of the money raised through our sponsors, fundraising efforts and private donations goes back into the running of the SoupBus and the Education Scholarships that the Foundation provides.
Our vision is one of compassion, justice and meaning, expressed through a caring community where all people are valued and respected. It is in this spirit that we pursue a community development approach with the below principles.
The SoupBus provides an after-dark meal service to Ballarat’s homeless and less fortunate through the cooperation and support of the Ballarat community.
SoupBus aims to create dignified and respectful interaction with those in our community who are in need of the greatest assistance. 5 evenings a week (Sunday 5.30pm-8.00pm & Monday to Thursday 7.30pm-9.00pm), one of our supporting restaurants, cafes and bakeries assist in our food preparation for the SoupBus to distribute free of charge from our central location.
