Melbourne-based Sikh Volunteers Australia have delivered tens of thousands of meals to those in need since the Covid-19 pandemic started.

'It's like a full military operation we have underway,' Jaswinder Singh says of Sikh Volunteers Australia (SVA).

The operation has cooked and delivered an estimated 174,000 meals across the city since pandemic lockdowns began in 2020 - that's up to 1500 meals every day.

SVA home delivers meals to anyone in need and volunteers often drive long distances to distribute food in places impacted by floods and fires.

Last summer they visited bushfire-hit Gippsland, 120km east of Melbourne, and last March volunteers drove 12 hours to provide food during the NSW floods.
