House of Welcome Food Drive

——— APOLOGIES, THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, DETAILS TBA ———  

Our annual food drive for House of Welcome kicks off on 3 April with the event In Conversation: Truth Be Told

The food drive will continue to run until the end of April 2020. Please drop your bags of shopping to the NSCC office anytime between 10am - 6pm, Mon to Friday. 

The food bank is already suffering from the knock on effects of coronavirus, with many staple household foods and items hard to find in the supermarkets. Please help us stock them back up and make sure that families relying on these basic supplies can get them. 

Last year the community collected over 1000 bags of household shopping for refugees and asylum seekers. During April we are asking for your help as we aim to fill the shelves at the House of Welcome food bank. Simply bring your bag of shopping to the Centre and we will arrange for it to get to the House of Welcome. Spread the word amongst friends and work colleagues – every bag makes a difference!
