Anyone growing food in their own backyard inevitably produces excess - more than one family can consume. Whether you just grow herbs, apply permaculture principles to urban farming or have an abundant Mediterranean food garden - there is always excess!
Melbourne food relief providers are currently met with higher demand for emergency assistance than they can cope with. People are presenting for food relief at higher rates than in the past due to financial stress, homelessness or domestic violence. Some families that present are living in their cars because they have no where else to go.
Perhaps if every individual contributes a little of their excess, food relief providers will have enough for everyone facing a crisis....???...
FareShare provides 5,000 meals a day to people seeking assistance, yet they need to produce more. Liberty Church also provide a food relief service to Epping. With everyone contributing a little, the whole community will have abundance :-)
If you would like to help, please bring any contribution to the FareShare refrigerated van to Liberty Church, 25 Miller St, Epping on Sunday November 27th between 10 am and 2pm.
