Dignity’s Food Relief Expands to Campbelltown

Dignity has expanded its Food Relief program to reach those in need in South Western Sydney, with the announcement of a partnership with the Southwest Multicultural and Community Centre (SWMACC).

Located in Minto, SWMACC is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that delivers tailored-made community programs to the diverse communities of South West Sydney. As a result of the partnership, the centre’s services will now include food relief with homemade, frozen ready meals available to those within the community facing financial hardship. 

Dignity’s Food Relief Program was created to assist people in need and to ease the financial burden of putting food on the table. Prepared by a team of Dignity Dishes volunteers, the program diverts fresh produce, supplied by OzHarvest and Second Bite, destined for landfill to the dining tables of people who need it most.

“At Dignity, we provide a range of innovative services that empower people experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness. Our Food Relief program is a good example of this and partnerships with community-based organisations such as SWMACC ensures easy access to meals for vulnerable members of the community already being supported at the centret.”

Dignity CEO Suzanne Hopman

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, those in need of support should call Mal and her team to organise a suitable time for collection of meals on (02) 9603 2500 or 040 728 1245. SWMACC is located at 4 Surrey Street, Minto.

Last month, Dignity announced a similar partnership with PCYC NSW with homemade ready meals available in the Southern Highlands, Shoalhaven, Parramatta and Hornsby areas.
