Community Food Programs

Community Food Programs

CatholicCare Food Services including our Community Kitchens (based in Taree and Foster-Tuncurry) and our Community Food Programs, including a meal home delivery service. Underpinning our Food Services are the Catholic social teaching principles of dignity of the human person and the common good.

To help ease the burden of homelessness, CatholicCare Food Programs provide hot, nutritious meals across the region. Working in collaboration with other agencies including Orange Sky Laundry, our team of dedicated volunteers provide food, hospitality and friendship to the marginalised in our community. CatholicCare Food Programs are key outreach services that engage directly with people who may require support and assistance, as well as access to information and other services.

CatholicCare Food Programs support more than 150 people each week across six sites: at Islington, Maitland, Nelson Bay, Raymond Terrace, Toronto and Woodberry, and now make 500-600 meals per week for home delivery.

The success of CatholicCare Food Programs is contingent on the generous support of local businesses who provide fresh produce, meat and bakery items that our volunteers use to make nutritious meals.
