This year, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to close our doors from early April until mid-May. Due to this, the majority of the programs we were delivering for the community ceased during this period. In spite of the closure, we were fortunate enough to continue to deliver our Emergency Relief program on a contactless basis. This allowed us to continue to support the community with crisis and emergency relief assistance with food and bill support during a time when they needed us the most. Also continued was our free bread, feeding the community & feed the farmers programs. Since restrictions have eased, the bulk of our programs and activities have been able to re-commence following strict COVID-19 Work Safe protocols and guidelines including adhering to social distancing codes. Our School Holiday programs this year were delivered through a boredom buster packs for the kids in the community to enjoy at home with their families over the school holiday periods.
