Bring a Bag

Get involved in assisting the homeless and disadvantaged in the community by providing food for our pantry. Drop in to Discovery Community Care and pick up a shopping list and bag. Schools, local businesses and community members are encouraged to join us.

At DCC we have almost 3000 visits each year from people seeking aid with many different challenges they are facing, but the most common reason given for attending our service is “NO FOOD”.

We have a great way that you can assist in even a small way; we call it “BRING a BAG”.

All you need to do is drop into reception and ask for a donation bag – it comes with a list of our most requested staples. Take the bag home and over a period of just a few weeks, add just one or two items to your usual shop,  then bring back the bag.  Alternatively, go shopping and drop the bag back to us.

 Shopping List

  • UHT milk
  • tinned tuna
  • pasta sauce
  • tub of margarine
  • canned veggies
  • canned soup
  • breakfast cereal
  • toothpaste
  • toilet paper
  • coffee
  • laundry detergent
  • shampoo/conditioner

While we understand your reasons, we do ask that you do not provide any “treat” items as we can source plenty of these from other agencies and they are usually free.
