Unfortunately, we have to turn away approximately 55 more people each week, simply because we don’t have enough items in stock.

If you would like to help us stock our Emergency Relief Pantry so we can give away more Emergency Relief Food Parcels, we would be grateful to receive your donations of:

  • Long-life milk
  • Tins of tuna
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Pasta
  • Canned Spaghetti
  • Tinned meat-corned beef
  • Cups of noodles

Please bring your donated items to Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre between 9am and 5pm weekdays and let the Reception team know when you arrive by visiting the service window. If you will need assistance to unload your vehicle, please phone us in advance to arrange a drop-off time.
