The People of the Anglican Parish of Glenelg faithfully collect non perishable food for those in our community who need food assistance. People who need this assistance maybe homeless, couch surfing, sleeping rough or living in poverty. Each month, the Parish hands out food to 45 people who seek assistance.
If you need food assistance
Come to the Parish office, through the metal gates from 9.15am-12pm Tuesday to Friday for assistance.
Bring your CentreLink card and complete an application form about your circumstances. (completed once)
Each time you visist, we will ask you for your CentreLink card too.
A bag of non-perishible food will be provided. Food is available on a fortnightly basis only.
If you’d like to donate food
This program does not receive any funding from State or Commonwealth governments, or the Anglican Church. Food is donated by people who are a part of the Parish or people in the Glenelg community.
Here is an example of items that people donate –
Long life milk, pasta, pasta sauce, breakfast cereal, sweet and savoury biscuits, tea, cans of soup, spaghetti, baked beans, meal in a can, tuna, instant noodles, cans of vegetables, canned fruit.
Some people bring items from pantries, especially when loved ones move into aged care facilities or overseas. We will check each item to has not reached the best before date.
Plastic cutlery and can openers are useful for those who are rough sleeping and homeless.
We thank Coles Supermarket Glenelg for providing the plastic bags to put the food into.
