Who We Are
Food for Life started in January 2012. It had been a dream of Julie for a number of years. It was when we heard a ladies story at the end of 2011, that Food for Life was born. It is now a story we are all to farmilar with. The lady had paid her rent and electricity bill and was left with little money to buy food. After taking her to the supermarket and spending $180 on food, we realised, that there must be a better way to help families on an ongoing basis. Food for Life was the solution. A low cost supermarket where families or individuals could shop for groceries at a low cost.
We aim to continually add grocery lines at low cost, while running a place where people recieve hope, support an encouragement for Life's journey.
From helping 5 families on our first day in 2012 to over 270 families a week in 2015. We have seen many familiues start to get ahead
Since starting in 2012, Food for Life has changed and expanded in our original premises. We now service over 1900 clients, are in a room twice the size of where we started and offer five times more grocery lines than when we started.
Our passion is to see struggling families transformed.
Come and join the Food for Life family today.
