The Marian Catholic College community action team took out the 2016 Connections Uniting Care Anti-Poverty Award and a grant for $2500. The team is a group of student volunteers who worked together to reduce the inequalities and injustices that they identified within their community.

Under the guidance of Pastoral Care Worker Sue Hone, the team successfully completed activities which provide practical support or financial assistance therefore increasing the social and emotional well-being of those directly impacted.
The team cooked on a roster basis for a mobile kitchen which provided not only a nutritionally balanced hot meal but also opportunities for socialisation within a lower-socio economic community.
