Food Relief Update

Published on September 23, 2020

Since the beginning of March the NewHope Community Care team has been supporting approximately 30 clients per month with food relief. Your generous donations have been instrumental in making this possible!

Due to stock shortages at Food Bank Victoria, the food pantry is currently lacking some of the key products that would usually make up a food parcel. We would appreciate any donations at this time.

The following items would be particularly helpful:

  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • UHT Milk (1L or 2L)
  • Tuna
  • Coffee or Tea
  • Woolworths reusable green shopping bags
  • Baby care items (including nappies)

Donations can be left in the blue bins located at NewHope’s Springfield Road entrance.

There have also been a couple of device requests in recent weeks.

  • An international university student in need of a computer for study.
  • A single mum needs a device for one of her kids for high school.

If anyone is able to help with this, please contact the office or use the ‘I Can Help’ form on the home page.

Thank you for all your support in advance!
