However, rather than having people come to the Centre, it is doing phone interviews and delivering food parcels to people’s homes. Some of the Peninsula Voice Committee are involved as delivery drivers. With fresh food provided by SecondBite and Oz Harvest, the Centre has been making deliveries to about 110 homes each week.
Further, it has been able to provide ready cooked meals from Volpino Restaurant in Mt Martha, The Winey Cow, Toorak College and hopefully soon from Manhattan Restaurant and the RACV.
The Centre has also been receiving regular deliveries of non-perishable items from SecondBite which have been delivered to homes to supplement the fresh food deliveries. The packages include non-perishable food and essential hygiene items and you can register to receive one by phoning the Shire on 1300 850 600.
If you, or anyone you know, is doing it tough in general or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and who may not know about their services, please invite them to call on 59751644.
