Community Information – food relief services for families affected by covid-19 within the Parramatta Region

ACCF has received an email from the NSW/ACT Community Engagement, Social Cohesion Division of the Federal Department of Home Affairs that some people are facing sudden financial hardship, have resorted to trading their furniture for food. Vinnies are trying to get the message out to the community that their Support Centres are still available to assist with food vouchers and other items. Although some Support Centres may have their doors closed at the moment, they are still taking calls and arranging for food vouchers or food items to be provided to those in need. Please find a list of food relief services in the Parramatta region who are operating during the COVID-19 restrictions. Please share this information with your networks to help get the message out into the community.
