Relaxing in the Sunday food queue
By Rhonda Dredge
There’s no need to stand in line for two hours at the Food Relief Centre in Swanston St any more. Your trolley can do the work for you.
The food queue culture has evolved since August when hungry CBD locals were forced to stand on white crosses on the street in all kinds of bad weather.
Now people are given numbers at 11am and they can leave or find a seat nearby until distri- bution begins at 1pm.
Regulars say the queue has halved in length since the hospitality industry resumed in November when many of the Cross Cultural Church’s clients returned to work.
