The elderly isolated from family, the disabled, single parents with vulnerable children who can't go out to shop, international students who have lost their casual jobs - these are all people across Canberra and the surrounding region being fed and, in some cases, literally being kept alive, by charity Turbans 4 Australia, which is manned entirely by volunteers.

I like telling local stories with integrity. My greatest hope is that someone will read my story and turn to someone in a cafe or in the next cubicle or across the breakfast table and say, "Did you hear about this?" Email: megan.doherty@canberratimes.com.au
