Feeding Scheme Blessed – November 2014


Every Wednesday we feed between 120-150 folk who are less fortunate than most. The folk who come and fetch their WEEKLY food parcel from us are generally over the age of 64 and are not able to work because of disability, disadvantage or just being too old to work. Quite often these “Gogos” are the only source of food supply for an entire family of disadvantaged children. With our new HEIDELBERG MALL opening on the 23rd October we approached Woolworths (and other stores) and asked if they would consider letting us have their damaged/sell by date food to distribute to these folk. Well we were blessed with our first consignment of food last Tuesday and we were able to feed all the folk who came to collect food. We also received cakes from Woolworths and gave this to the folk. One Gogo danced and sang – she cannot remember when last she had eaten a piece of cake. What a blessing……thanks to Woolworths for blessing us so that we can bless these fantastic people.
