What you can get at the Global Care Food Pantry???
For $30 they can fill 2 material supermarket bags – one with fresh fruit and vegetables and one with grocery items.
For $50 they can fill 4 material grocery bags – one with fresh fruit and vegetables and three with grocery items.
Bring your bags or you can purchase bags for $1 each at the Pantry.
Some food items are:
Rice, pasta, pasta sauces, marinades, breakfast cereals, drinks, toiletries, snacks, soups, dressings, sauces, coffee/tea, sugar, UHT milk, bread, desserts, fruit and vegetables.
Woolworths Armidale donated our first 50 material bags, so now all we do is replace them with the $1 we charge for each one.
Coles Armidale donated 6 trolleys to help our members fill their bags in and get them to their cars safely.
The food variety is limited to the supply from Foodbank NSW. No fridge or freezer items are available. However you can purchase a Meat Voucher for $15 to be redeemed at Jackson Quality Meats in Armidale and Dales Downtown Meats in Uralla, for $20 worth of meat/goods.
Each Week we unload fresh supplies from Foodbank NSW in Sydney, up to 1 tonne of food. Then we buy fresh fruit and vegetables from Armidale Market Fresh each Friday morning. Also we buy fruit in season from Warren Yeomans Orchards locally.
Our volunteers do a fantastic job! I know we have the best volunteers in Armidale and Uralla!!
