With the support of funding from LotteryWest, Second Harvest Australia Incorporated branched out into emergency food relief in 2009. From small beginnings this will continue to develop and support local communities. The emergency relief has been primarily in food vouchers and /or hampers and are distributed following a vetting process through the Food Centres. Additionally hospitals have been approached to assist needy families with hampers following the discharge of the patient from hospital.
We are currently supplying hampers to Armadale Kelmscott Memorial Hospital and King Edward Memorial Hospital.
We are also providing emergency relief food hampers to those in need in the Cockburn area.
