The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have acted to help the families of Southwest Sydney, by supporting an outstanding local program called the Community Care Kitchen (CCK).
This program will see the Bulldogs and the Canterbury League Club team up to provide funding for the Community Care Kitchen Program, who help feed families in need throughout Southwest Sydney. In addition, Canterbury League Club chefs will assist with the program, helping to provide fresh portioned meals that will be distributed.
The initiative will be headed up by former Bulldogs star Hazem El Masri, who will act as the Program Ambassador and will co-ordinate the delivery of the meals in conjunction with the Community Care Kitchen.
