LifeSource Community FoodCare continues to open every Thursday.
We are currently operating from 8am – 11.45 am each Thursday and can provide a free bag of fruit, vegetables and bread and bags of groceries at a set cost of $15.Unfortunately, the parcels are pre-packed and it is not possible due to high demand for the food to have a preference for food items.
All Community shoppers are asked to register upon arrival at FoodCare to receive their membership card and then to move to the parcel pick up area. We are also asking that if shoppers are paying by cash they have the correct amount as no change can be given or you can pay by Debt or credit card. Once you have collected the fruit, vegetable and bread parcel and the groceries parcel we would ask that shopper leave the FoodCare site to comply with government guidelines at meeting places.
The LifeSource Community Care FoodCare Program provides free fruit, vegetables & bread, plus affordable groceries at a low recovery fee currently $15 a bag.
EFTPOS payment facilities will also be available, if paying by cash, please have exact amount as no change given.
