Accessing Food


Every day and night, in every capital city and many regional centres, Vinnies is nourishing the hungriest and neediest in our community. We provide all kinds of nourishment, from hot meals, drinks and snacks to companionship and community.

Our volunteers help break through the barriers of loneliness and isolation that many living on the fringe of society suffer. We can provide a meal, blankets, toiletries, snacks, hot beverages and most importantly, companionship. As a result Vinnies has helped foster genuine communities of friends from all walks of life.

St Vincent de Paul Canberra/Goulburn Conferences can provide support with accessing food. Conferences are typically parish-based groups who respond to calls for assistance from people in need in their local community. Conference members visit people in their homes, in hospitals and in prisons. In some country centres Conference members interview people needing assistance in the local Vinnies Centres. We try to find the most appropriate response to the needs of individuals and families.
