These are the Shopping Angels. A group of volunteers working to deliver food and groceries to the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Co-founder Tara O’Kane (Bachelor of Engineering / Bachelor of Commerce ’20) was just two weeks into a three-month-long trip from Brisbane to London to start a new role with KPMG when news of the COVID-19 outbreak hit.

As a pandemic was declared and national borders around the world began to close, O’Kane decided it was time to return to Brisbane.

Upon returning, she was forced into self-isolation, unable to do the day-to-day tasks many of us, before now, had taken for granted.

It was then she saw an advertisement for Shopping Angels in the US.
