The Kogarah Storehouse provides free parcels of food for families and individuals who are struggling to make ends meet. Without this help these people and their families would most likely go hungry.
The food parcels contain staple groceries plus fresh food.
The Storehouse is a distribution agent for Oz Harvest, Coles 2nd Bite, Woolworths, Food Bank, who donate the food or provide it at low cost. Generous donors provide the funds needed to provide this valuable service.
Food parcels are available Monday to Friday 10am – 2pm. A Centrelink card is required to be eligible and there is a limit normally of one parcel per client per month. Exceptional circumstances, however, are accommodated.
The Kogarah Storehouse serves morning tea each Wednesday between 10.00 to 11.00 followed by lunch between 12.00 & 1pm. Morning tea and lunch are provided at no cost to all in the community, however a gold coin donation is very much appreciated.
Lunch is prepared by a team of dedicated volunteers who love to serve our community in this very practical way. The food is always tasty and healthy.
With so many in our community living on their own, or are new to the area, or have little opportunity for outside contact with others, or are struggling to live on a very low income, this can be a highlight of their week where they will receive a warm and friendly welcome to come and join in with others and enjoy a chat and social contact.
Is an activity of the Kogarah Uniting Church.
