Emergency Food Bank

The Food Bank is a new service that will commence operations from the week beginning 24th July 2017.

Our Food bank shopping days will be Wednesday and Fridays 10am – 2pm. NO appt required

We have limited assorted groceries available for those needing emergency food relief . Some items will be limited to one per person / family.

We do not pack hampers. This is a self serve  program. Limit 1 shopping bag for 1 person, or 2 shopping bags for a family.

Guidelines to HAPPY shopping at the FOOD BANK
o Shopping will start at 10am and will finish at 2pm. We will not open the door early. This is to ensure that everyone gets a fair opportunity to shop.
o Limit is 1 bag for 1 person or 2 bags for a family.
o Anyone who needs the Food Bank can access this service. We are asking to sight something that indicates to us that you are shopping for more than 1 person if you ask for 2 bags, eg: could be a Medicare card or something else with family names on it.
o Access to the Food Bank is limited to no more than once a fortnight.
o We love children, but we cannot take responsibility for them. Children under 15 will need an adult with them to shop at our Food Bank.
o Please bring your own shopping bags, unfortunately we do not have enough bags for everyone, and we ask that you pack your own bag/s.
o Please be mindful that we only have a certain amount of food available at each time. This means that some items are limited to one per person / family.
o We humbly accept any donations to help us with the running cost of the Food Bank.
o Our work is inspired by the Pay it Forward Model. To ensure we can service all those who need it please take what you need & where you can, do something nice for someone else or donate back to the food bank when you can. Kindness is contagious
o DISCLAIMER: There may be video, audio or photos taken at the Food Bank events for social media if you don’t wish to appear online or in media publications please let us know.

The Food Bank is run on people power, we ask you to be respectful of our volunteers and staff.
