We operate every Friday from our church hall where clients on concession cards or those who are struggling financially can come and be registered and receive a food parcel consisting of basic pantry items, fresh produce as it is available and bread. As well as the Friday operation, we deliver food hampers to those unable to attend or who are in emergency situations. Each week we distribute between 80 and 100 boxes. Our food is sourced from a number of supermarkets, small businesses and Food Relief NQ. We rely heavily on donations of food and money as we receive only modest support from other sources. Although much of the food is donated, a significant amount is also purchased in order to keep a good balance of staples in the hampers. Since virus restrictions were enforced, our Friday operation has been changed. Now we pre-pack boxes and deliver to clients in the car park. This ensures minimal contact between clients and volunteers. We have 28 staff all of whom are volunteers.
