Uniting Church Croydon Victoria

Helping Hand - food for all

$

Helping Hand, a mission of Croydon Uniting Church, has been running for 25 years providing food and some other assistance to people struggling to get by. We provide food parcels tailor-made for each client, some food vouchers and limited assistance with Myki cards or Petrol vouchers; mainly for urgent needs such as medical appointments, job interviews or court appearances. We are happy to give some food at any time, but restrict the supply of any vouchers to once each month.

We source food supplies from Foodbank, Secondbite, FareShare, Bakers Delight, ALDI and donations from members of several Uniting Church congregations and the general community. Although restricted in space we receive a large supply of fruit and vegetables once a week from Secondbite which we distribute from the nature strip – with Council approval. 

Last year the main office and the fruit and vegetable program had a combined total of more than 1,500 visits, and this included many new clients.  There are more than 700 families on our attendance lists seeking support.
