The toughest thing about poverty in Canberra is the icy winters and high rental costs. A practical way Holy Cross can help out is to ensure that the people we come in contact with don’t face food shortage. Holy Cross keeps a Food Basket to prevent this from happening.
Holy Cross is currently supporting a family that is doing it tough. If you can help out – the following food items would be appreciated on a regular basis: rice, cous-cous, canned tuna/sardines/luncheon meat (eg Spam), canned fruit, powdered milk or long life milk, sugar, cooking oil, canned tomatoes/paste, cereals, fruit juice. Please place the items in the food basket located in the foyer.
