Our Food Care program is run from our Grainery Care Centre in Mayfield. The shop is open three days a week and offers free and affordable groceries and household items for those on Centrelink Cards, Students, Pensioners and low income households.
For many families the pressures of low income and credit they are struggling to pay, means the grocery shop is often full of anxiety. Free care packages can be collected to cover their emergency needs.
The Bag of Blessing are grocery donations which allow Grainery Care to stock our shop and reduce the amount of food we have to buy from our partners. To make a "Bag of Blessing" donation consider adding a few extra groceries onto your regular grocery shop and deliver direct to the shop or drop them at the Grainery Church.
What to include:
Long life milk (Powdered or UHT)
Canned meals (Chilli, Stews, Currys)
Foodbank is Australia's largest food relief organisation, providing 60 million meals a year to over 2400 charities and 1000 schools around the country.
OzHarvest is Australia's leading food rescue charity. We collect quality surplus food, distribute it to people in need and divert food waste from landfill.
This month Grainery Care is seeking to raise $150,000 to complete the development of the 252 Community Centre which will provide invaluable support to many at-risk members of our community.
