Nexus Care - Helping People Find a Fresh Start

$

Food insecurity is not just a third world issue; it's an issue right here in our local community.

Nexus Care is a non-profit organisation located on Brisbane's Northside, passionate about seeing people journey towards wholeness and find their 'fresh start' in life. Nexus Care reaches out to our local community helping more than 1,500 households each year through our high-quality Fresh Start Food Program

The Fresh Start program consists of food relief and education services, emergency financial relief and various local school breakfast programs.

Why Nexus Care?

Poverty in Australia is a silent burden many Australians carry.

  • 2.5 million Australians live in poverty including 17.7% of Australian children
  • Every month, 60,000 Australians seeking food relief are turned away for lack of resources.

The negative impacts of poverty and disadvantage on all areas of life - physical, social and emotional - are incredibly real and difficult to break.

Nexus Care has strategically developed key programs that help relieve this burden and assist those in hardship to find a fresh start.

What we do:

Fresh Start Food Program

  • Food Parcels With A Difference - Created by a community nutritionist, the Fresh Start Program supports over 120 families in hardship every month with nutritious food parcels including lean meat, dairy, pantry staple items and fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as provides support to local homeless feeding programs.
  • Cooking Classes - These frequently run classes aim to help people obtain the skills necessary to make nutritious meals and get the most benefit from the food parcels for themselves and their families.
  • School Breakfast Programs - Every week, Nexus Care provides nourishing breakfasts including milk, yoghurt, fruit and toast to over 550 children and teenagers across 6 schools in the Brisbane North area as well as creating a fun environment for students to hang out.
