Food Hamper Network
‘The food from EFT has helped some of the stress as I know I don't have to worry so much about feeding my children.’
We provide regular fortnightly food hampers, including ambient items, fresh fruit, veg and bread to households in need. Our main recipients of the hampers are pensioners and vulnerable adults, but we also deliver to some local schools.
We pride ourselves on making this service accessible and immediate for those needing the service. Individuals can call us and self-refer for a hamper whenever they are in need. We then get the hampers to them within the same week, if not the same day.
Through funding, we purchase food weekly and use Fareshare and donations from local supermarkets to fill our hampers, and try to include items that can make healthy and balanced meals.
People are also welcome to use our pantry system where they can come to our office and choose their own items.
‘Thank you for the food parcels. Your cheerful way and good deeds are always appreciated, and you make a difference to our lives. Thank you for being such a source of inspiration and support through these difficult times we all live in now.’
Between April and October 2022, we gave out food to
1,128 households which included 3,227 individuals.
