The Christian Emergency Food Centre is able to provide:
Emergency food parcels are available for individuals and families in need. These can be accessed either directly from the Centre or by request from a social worker.
Food parcels can be sent by truck to most towns in the Wimmera and Southern Mallee.
Thanks to the provision of funds from the Federal Government we can, at times, also provide financial help to help purchase medical prescriptions, fuel for an emergency situation or to pay outstanding bills. By necessity funds are capped.
Referrals can be made to any outside agency depending on need. eg. to the Salvation Army for physical needs or Wimmera UnitingCare for accommodation or financial counselling.
A listening ear
Each client has the opportunity to tell their story to one of our caring interviewers.
