DESPITE a downturn suffered by many local businesses, Hog’s Breath Mandurah will again supply a free roast Christmas lunch to 200 homeless and disadvantaged people in Mandurah just before Christmas.
The lunch will be cooked at the restaurant and collected and served up by Peel Community Kitchen at a separate venue on December 20. It is already completely booked out.
In earlier years, Hog’s Breath appealed for gifts for lunch guests which it collected in a box at the restaurant and passed on to the Peel Community Kitchen.
This year, Peel Community Kitchen is hoping for gifts of money that can be spent on specific presents.
Donations can be made at Hog’s Breath.
December is a big month for the restaurant – not only is it celebrating its 20th anniversary in Mandurah, but also the completion of renovations that has put $160,000 into the pockets of local tradesmen.
Owner Manish Gupta said he had used 100 per cent local tradies for the renovations.
The restaurant features memorabilia and historic photographs of the Peel region.
