Welcome to the website of the Collective of St Mary Magdalene (COSMM). We are a grassroots, non-profit organisation that provides a free weekly 3 course sit-down meal for people in need. Meals are served on Saturday nights from 6 pm at 26 Moore St, Adelaide. All are welcome!



The Collective


The Collective of St Mary Magdalene was founded over twenty years ago by a group of Anglican youth who wished to find a clear vehicle to live their principles of love and justice in the South Australian community. This was and is made possible through the enduring support of the Parish of St Mary Magdalene, whose commitment to social justice and equality in our city remains an inspiration. The COSMM Drop In Centre operates out of the Parish Hall to this day.

Our nutritious, three-course meals are prepared on a rostered basis by parishes, schools, and work and neighbourhood groups from across Adelaide, who come together with our many volunteers and patrons to create our deep-rooted community of friendship and warmth. Everyone is welcome to a seat at our table.
