The most requested support we provide is for food provisions for those who find themselves in dire hardship. It is not uncommon for us to receive requests for Veterans who haven’t eaten for several days!
Once we have made initial contact and completed our detailed dietary assessment, we can place an order with our chosen supermarket supplier, for an urgent delivery. Each order contains fresh, frozen and cupboard foods as well as toiletries, feminine hygiene products and household products such as toilet paper and washing liquid. We can also cater for pet foods and baby/toddler products as well.
On average, food orders are delivered within 24 hours of our assessment.
In 2019 alone, we placed 453 food shopping orders!
Food shopping support can be provided up to a maximum of 6 occasions to an individual.
