Did you know it’s been one year since UberEATS graced Melbourne with its presence?
Melbourne Lyf celebrated with the UberEATS gang at everyone’s favourite rooftop glamping spot – St Jerome’s Hotel, last week (Scroll to the bottom for pictures).
The team revealed an amazing collaboration with Melbourne-based artist Heesco.
Not sure who that is? Well, he recently knocked up this amazing mural for the World’s 50 Best Restaurants (watch below).
The collaboration resulted in Heesco creating seven exclusive street art-inspired paintings, featuring Melbourne’s CBD, St Kilda, Richmond, Abbotsford, South Yarra, Hawthorn and Fitzroy.
With a bit of help from fellow artist Seb Fransz, Heesco has created some truly Melbourne paintings that are just screaming to be hung on your wall.
All seven pieces are currently being auctioned on eBay.
Better yet, all proceeds from the sale will go to the Feed Melbourne Appeal, which raises money to help local food relief charities provide food to those struggling to afford to eat.
Better hurry though, the auction ends on April 26 at 12 noon.
Check out these amazing creations, and click on the picture to find out how to bid.

About the Feed Melbourne Appeal
The Feed Melbourne Appeal is an annual fundraising appeal conducted by Leader Community News and FareShare.
Every dollar raised by the appeal helps individuals and families in Melbourne who are struggling with food insecurity.
Through Leader Community News, we call on the community to join us in the fight against hunger in Victoria. Local food charities are encouraged to apply to the Foundation for a Feed Melbourne Appeal grant of up to $15,000. These grants allow charities to purchase vital infrastructure items and low-cost staple food stock to meet the increasing demand for meals or food hampers in their community. Bulk food orders and expensive items such as fridges, freezers and vans needed to cook, prepare and distribute food, are often beyond the reach of small cash-poor organisations.
The Feed Melbourne Appeal grant applications are thoroughly assessed by a special grants advisory panel who allocate two thirds of the appeal’s total revenue to the programs that will make the greatest impact on food relief in Victoria.
The remaining third of the appeal revenue is allocated to Melbourne based food rescue charity and Appeal partner, FareShare, a community group that operates Australia’s largest charity kitchen. FareShare works with businesses and supermarkets to rescue quality food destined for landfill and cooks 5000 free, nutritious meals every day. FareShare volunteers cook, pack and distribute this food to charities across Victoria to feed people experiencing hardship.
From 2011 to 2016, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation matched donations made to the Feed Melbourne Appeal as part of its Food Security Initiative. Over six years, the Foundation’s support provided almost $1.4 million dollars of additional funding to local food programs helping vulnerable people in the community.
