Emergency Relief

With the support of funding from LotteryWest, Second Harvest Australia Incorporated branched out into Emergency Food Relief in 2009. From small beginnings, this continues to develop and support local communities.

The Emergency Relief Programs have been primarily in food vouchers or hampers and are distributed following a vetting process through the Food Centre. Currently, Second Harvest provides emergency relief food hampers to those in need in the Cockburn area.

Additionally, hospitals have been approached to assist needy families with hampers following the discharge of the patient from the hospital.

Second Harvest is currently supplying hampers to King Edward Memorial Hospital, Armadale Hospital & Fiona Stanley Hospital.

Second Harvest thanks Lotterywest, Cockburn Council and ATCO Gas for their continuing support of Second Harvest's Emergency Relief Program

Cockburn City Council

Second Harvest are supported by the City of Cockburn via a donation each year, that goes to support our Emergency Relief program. These funds greatly increase our ability to provide many more hampers to our local community.


Second Harvest continued to partner with the fantastic ATCO staff for two cooks ups per year.

After a lot of peeling, cutting, slicing, dicing, stirring and waiting for the polenta to get thick and creamy, the meals were ready to be packed into their containers, sealed and labelled. All the meals were given out in our Emergency Relief Food Hampers. The hearty shepherds pies were well received by all our clients.

Second Harvest is extremely grateful for their ongoing support. Thank you ATCO Gas!
