Welcome to VAKS
Your list to finding Vans and Kitchens offering food, drink and contact in and around Brisbane and the Great South East.
VAKS is a voluntary network of community organisations and groups who offer sustenance via Vans and Kitchens. VAKS in itself, does not have its own van or kitchen. The VAKS website has been set up to support Vans and Kitchens that are already operating, each of which are autonomous and independent organisations.
Most kitchen services and street vans are operated by volunteers and source the food and beverages through their own support facilities. They provide this either by a nominal charge or for free.
Everyone is welcome
But these are not welcome:
Drugs, violence, sniffing of any substance, alcohol, weapons
