A Brisbane man has found a way to share his cooking talents and clean up his community at the same time.

Chris Patterson collects recyclable cans and uses the profits gained through the Queensland Government’s “Container’s For Change” initiative to buy groceries for a community house.

Mr Patterson adds a healthy spin to his soup to account for the nutrition gap homeless populations may not have access to.
