There’s nothing more practical in the world than a food parcel. Donated to Jericho Road, you can be sure it will go to extremely appreciative people who come into the Surry Hills centre every week. Let us know you’ve got a collection of dry goods or canned goods, and we’ll be happy to come to your church to pick it all up.


Food Donations

As part of our Packed with Love ministry we give food out to the needy. However to do this we need support. We can only give out food to those in need if we have food donated to us. If you would like to support us in this ministry, as we extend God’s love to those in our community, you can make a donation of food (see the list below for appropriate food items) which can be delivered to Church offices in Surry Hills:
