Increasing demand for food relief puts pressure on charities

As the cost of groceries and living expenses continues to rise, more and more families and individuals have been forced to reach out to charities for assistance and the demand is putting huge pressure on them as they work to source enough supplies to help those in need.

Our CEO Amanda Tobler is acutely aware of this growing problem: ‘Food pantries are such a vital service for so many in our community. Our food pantry has seen a significant increase in demand and our clients repeatedly tell us that the relief our pantry provides them means they are able to pay for vital costs such as rent, medical appointments and medication.’ She said.

If you know someone who needs assistance please call our office on 1800 960 938. If you would like to donate to our food pantry you can either drop goods to our reception: 63 Boolimba Cres, Narrabundah, ACT.
