On Monday 26th August the Community Companion celebrated it's 5 year anniversary.
In 2014, the JPC Community Companion was launched. Students raised money to buy and fit out a food trailer. They identified the need in the community and that there was no soup van in the area for the homeless and marginalised.
The Community Companion serves in Frankston every Tuesday night (except in January). In 2019 the Companion introduced an additional evening on Thursdays, opening up volunteering to other members of the public, outside of JPC. Tuesday 5pm - 7pm Thursday 6pm-8pm.
