Food

Immediate support is on offer through Anglicare. We can help you with financial strains, or physical food items. We provide a number of services.

If you find yourself in financial hardship or crisis we can assist you with food parcels, vouchers, utility bills, and sometimes with household items or clothing.  Our assistance is based on individual assessment.

We run ten Emergency Relief services - Bondi, Campbelltown, Liverpool, Moss Vale, Mt Druitt, Parramatta, Penrith, Summer Hill and Wollongong.  We also support Anglican parishes at Broadway, Darlinghurt, Glenfield​, Glebe, Katoomba and Richmond to run Emergency Relief services. Please check each centre for their phone number and opening times.

How do I know if I qualify for Emergency Relief?

Most people who see us usually receive a Centrelink payment or are low income earners. Please call an office in your area for further assistance.  We will ask you a few questions over the phone and quickly work out how we can help you.

Emergency Relief programs are restricted to residents living within the local area where they run.
