Enabling families to access essential food and groceries.

Our initiatives

Our ‘free trolley initiative’ is the best way we can provide instant assistance to families who have fallen on hard times, by providing them with a trolley filled with essential food items for free. This service not only provides desperately needed food for a family in need, but is also a gift of hope that helps them get back on their feet.

When families find themselves in an emergency situation: natural disasters, domestic violence, social justice, refugee support and any other situation that puts them in desperate need for help, we do all we can to ensure those families are supported and cared for. We are able to do this by partnering with local police, government and community organisations to provide food to the most hard-to-reach places.

For many vulnerable families Christmas can be a terribly sad and stressful time. Santa’s Little Helpers is a campaign we help run every year with the mission of providing Christmas presents for hundreds of children who may not receive any gifts. Many of these children are victims of mental health, neglect, poverty, abuse, custody battles, deceased parents or families in financial upheaval. With your support, we are able to continue this campaign and help make a child’s Christmas dreams come true.
