OUR VOLUNTEERS AND OUR AIM
Food For All Inc. Committee
The committee consists of members from the local churches, Society of St Vincent de Paul, community groups and individuals. It is ecumenically and community based.
What is our goal in the long run?
Food is collected throughout the Southern Mornington Peninsula. Food parcels are packed every Thursday morning in Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 16 Hinton Street, Rosebud. Food parcels contain not less than 16 items of non-perishable food. The aim is that every food parcel should contain a balanced diet – hence most parcels contain a packet of cereal, pasta, pasta sauce, long life milk, tea or coffee, a packet of biscuits, tinned fruit, soup, cheese, tinned or packet vegetables, jam, etc. Each parcel depends on the availability of our food supplies. From time to time fresh vegetables are also donated by suppliers and distributed with the parcels. On referral, the food parcels are distributed by the members of the local Conferences of the Society of St Vincent de Paul. Food For All is a unique example in Australia of interdenominational cooperation with some eight separate denominations over several parishes providing financial support for the organization and thus for the general Southern Peninsula community.
