Jacqui Toumbas, owner of Miss Bliss Wholefoods Kitchen in West End, has adapted quickly to the COVID-19 crisis, coming up with an awesome initiative supporting not only her own business, but the brave healthcare workers of Brisbane and vulnerable members of our community.

In an effort to support and build a sense of community, Miss Bliss has implemented a pay-it-forward system, giving customers the opportunity to purchase a meal to be delivered to those most vulnerable, including our frontline health care professionals and the elderly. Miss Bliss has donated many coffees and nutritious soups to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBW) COVID Fever Clinic herself, however she cannot keep up donating food at this time.

The pay it forward program allows patrons to contribute to the men and women who are on the front line of medical service during this extremely tough time. Nurses and Doctors are working a strenuous amount of hours and providing them these nutritious items would be a tremendous help. Miss Bliss also delivers to the elderly, allowing them to stay home during this time where they are at extreme risks in public.

If you are in a position where you believe you can help, please go to the Miss Bliss website and visit online meal orders. Under the beef lasagna, vegan mac & cheese, soup and risotto you will find a drop down PAY IT FORWARD. By purchasing this item, Miss Bliss will deliver it to an elderly person in our community or healthcare workers working long hours to help our family, friends and loved ones during this pandemic.
