StreetSmart & Penny Wise

Ladro StreetSmart SmartMeals

Ladro x SmartMeals DONATE

It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed during the Covid crisis. Looking out for each other, sharing what you have and focusing on what you can do in your local community has kept us grounded at Ladro, thanks to StreetSmart their SmartMeals program.

We’ve been cooking 400 meals a week for vulnerable people impacted by the pandemic, as part of a new pilot program, SmartMeals, brainchild of Adam Robinson – CEO of StreetSmart Australia in response to the Covid crisis.

SmartMeals puts empty hospitality venues to good use with a win-win concept feeding many in need at the same time. It supports venues like Ladro who have supported NFP’s like StreetSmart, for many years.

To say the pilot has been life changing is an understatement. It’s been life saving – business saving. Ladro has been able to keep two full-time chefs employed during the crisis and literally stay afloat – it works like this:

Ladro has been paired with local Fitzroy charity St Mary’s House of Welcome. We cook hundreds of meals for people in need, delivering them daily to the charity. Ladro is paid a small fee to cover food costs and labour with 100% of the fee going towards providing meals to combat homelessness and keep staff employed. It’s simple and brilliant, like all good ideas.

Now is a great time to share what you have. We’re urging anyone who can afford it to donate directly to StreetSmart. It allows us to provide as many meals as possible to feed an ever increasing number of people in need. If you’re in a position to do so, please…

DONATE HERE

We are all in this together and together we can grow this idea beyond the 400 meals Ladro provides. Our dream is to keep this initiative going well beyond the Covid crisis and we need your help to to it.

If you are a food manufacturer, farmer with excess stock, or in a position to sponsor the program, Ladro & StreetSmart would love to hear from you and have a chat. We’re not too proud to ask for help, especially when it helps hundreds more.

THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the program so far. We honestly could not have come this far without you.

LADRO CHRISTMAS HOURS

Wowsers, what a year!
At least Ladro & Ladro TAP will be open everyday except the main public holidays, right through the holiday season. To be be frank, without all your support, we’re not certain we’d have made it to Christmas this year – so thank you. Thank you for supporting us through takeaway only, buying goods from our Ladro Supermarket & Bottleshop, and most of all for dining with us the last six weeks. We’re so glad to be back doing what we love and can’t wait til 2021 ticks over.
Have a safe, feast filled and laughter riddled holiday with all your favourite people – but if COVID restrictions are keeping you apart, just know we’ll be thinking of you.
Buon Natale.
Merry Christmas.
Lots of love,
Ladro XO

MOTHER’S DAY – FOOD BOX

Mother's Day with Ladro 2020

We miss our mums. We’re sure you do too.
Nothing is more comforting than a warm, reassuring mum hug when life challenges us most, and Covid lockdown sure is testing that theory. This weekend most of us have to settle for a warm hug of mama style cooking instead. Thanks for you votes too – the two most popular options are in the boxes.

Ladro has two food box options with 3 x courses for you to reheat at home – brunch, lunch or dinner, for two, four or more. Add to the boxes with Prosecco, Wine, Negroni or fresh items from our LADRO SUPERMARKET.
Every Italian knows: Chi mangia sulo s’affoga – ‘He who eats alone suffocates’… But Covid lockdown wasn’t a consideration until seven weeks ago, so this Mother’s Day we encourage you to share a meal with your mum together, apart. Buon apettito XO

#worldstoughestjob MOTHERS DAY

Ladro Sophia Loren Mothers Day

We challenge you to watch #worldstoughestjob and not feel compelled to give their mama a giant hug! Treat her this Mothers Day… and everyday after!

Ask your mama what she wants to do this Mothers Day…Here’s what our mama’s want more than anything in the world:
Q: What would you like to do this Mothers Day?
– “a home made card with words to treasure”
– “pizza of course”
– “a hand made mug and a pair of wooly socks”
– “SLEEP”
– “lunch with the family”

We asked our mama’s what their favourite dishes are. Not surprisingly they said: pizza, roast, bubbles and chocolate came up A LOT!
So these are the extra special mama loving dishes we are serving alongside our usual menu this Mothers Day. Be sure to make a booking and your mama can enjoy feasting on our mum’s favourite dishes too.
