The Food Relief Network is a group of community-based agencies and organisations that provide emergency relief and material aid such as food hampers, vouchers and pantries to people in financial crisis living in Manningham.
The group also provides opportunities for members to explore collaboration and partnership to improve food security in our community.
This group is made up of members from the following organisations:
- Living & Learning @ Ajani
- Community Activation and Social Isolation (CASI) initiative
- LINC Manningham
- Manningham Christian Centre CareNet (MCC CareNet)
- Salvation Army
- St Vincent de Paul
- Vantage Point Church
The current focus is meeting the increase demand for food relief due to the COVID-19 situation, with a view to improving access to and distribution of fresh food. The agencies are actively seeking donations of food (either fresh or pantry staples) as well as gift cards that be used at supermarkets. Details on how to donate can be found here.
