I was chatting recently with Norman Gale, Coordinator of Community Services for the Salvation Army, and it seems that food insecurity remains a significant problem across parts of Melbourne, including Boroondara. As the Salvation Army emergency relief pantry was quite depleted, Geoff Widmer and I visited Campbells Bulkstore in Clayton. We managed to deliver two car loads of food items and some toiletries requested by Norman Gale. The photo below shows Geoff with some of the food and Meredith taking delivery on behalf of the Salvation Army.
Our Community Service Group is planning to also provide some Christmas hampers for the Salvation Army in Camberwell.
