COMMUNITY FOODCARE 

Community FoodCare is an essential part of Bay City Care’s community support programs. The Community FoodCare program provides grocery hampers for a nominal service and handling fee along with free fruit, vegetables and bread weekly to every family and individual with a concession benefit card who are facing a crisis or financial hardship. The Bay City Care Arncliffe Community FoodCare Program has around 1100 people who are currently members and supports over 80 families and individuals per week. 

Bay City Care’s Community FoodCare Program has now been opened in ten locations through partner organisations in Regents Park, Byron Bay, Cromer, Dee Why, Hawkesbury, Chatswood, Cooma, Yass, Arncliffe and a new location in Tamworth.  We are expecting to open new locations in the second half of 2018 and we anticipate continued expansion to include locations across NSW.  All our Community FoodCare programs run out of great locations that are staffed by friendly volunteers with tea and coffee available and the opportunity for a chat.

BAY CITY CARE AND COMMUNITY FOODCARE HAMPERS AND EMERGENCY RELIEF     

In 2013 Bay City Care provided over 800 emergency relief hampers (an average of 10 to 15 hampers per week) at no cost to individuals and families in crisis.

All the partner Community FoodCare organisations will be involved in handing out emergency relief hampers to those who are in desperate need also giving them the opportunity to use the Community Foodcare service on an ongoing basis.

Bay City Community FoodCare is an initiative of Bay City Church and a part of Bay City Care’s Community Support Programs.
