Every Thursday at Kingborough Family Church, we provide food (fresh vegetables, bread, pantry items, fresh milk…) and community support service. This includes providing food for those in need, as well as ‘The Shed’ – our op shop to purchase donated goods. During this time, we also have support workers on hand who are available for conversation, referrals for other assistance, prayer and other personal support.
To be eligible for this service you need to have a one-off interview, have a current Centrelink concession card or be in a position requiring urgent assistance. Please bring your own boxes or shopping bags.
Community Care starts at 11.45am every Thursday, except public holidays and a short closure over the Christmas/New Year period. Most people arrive about 11.30 for a cup of tea or coffee.
We source our food from different suppliers including Food Bank Tasmania, Fusion, Woolworths and other businesses.

Can You Help?
Community Care is a volunteer-based organisation, and a registered ‘not for profit’, supporting southern Tasmanian families each week. If you would like to donate financially to the ongoing support of our local community, or if you have the ability to volunteer on a Thursday, then please contact the church office.
As a part of this, we are currently looking to fund an extension on our existing facilities that will allow us to grow and provide greater assistance to those in need in our community, if you would like to know more contact us at the office on the link above.
Below are some of the areas that we support financially through our M28 Missions budget.
