They are averaging around 400 and 500 per week on their busier weeks . This time lastyear it was between 40 to 50 food parcels per week.
The Vinnies hub staff commented that this year they are seeing more of the families and individuals whose employment has been affected by the COVID19 Lockdowns.
To date from the end of March (beginning of first lockdown) till mid October a total of 18,500 food referrals for food parcels have been processed.

The staff at Vinnies work hard at procuring enough food to make food parcels that uphold the dignity of those needing assistance. Each family food parcels is designed to feed a family of four for a week. More food is added on according to size of family. A family food parcel includes a dry goods box of canned food spaghetti etc spreads, cereals, rice, cookies, pasta, bread etc, a 2nd box of fresh fruit and veg, milk and 3rd box of frozen goods eg 2- 3kg meat, frozen desserts, pizza, ready to heat meals, soup.
Other foodboxes are tailored to the needs of those who are unable to cook for themselves etc.
Vinnies is grateful to the donors and volunteers who really make this assistance for families possible.
