The Cathedral Pantry serves people with limited access to normal retail outlets due to age, frailty, isolation or sickness, as well as people on a limited income.
Each person is treated with dignity and confidentiality is assured.
Those seeking to access the Cathedral Pantry will be asked to provide one of the following documents: Centrelink Card, Health Benefits Card, Senior’s Card or a photo ID such as a current driver’s licence. No one will be denied assistance due to the lack of such documents, but these documents will allow us to track how well we are serving the most needy people in our community.
For frail, aged and isolated people we may be able to offer some home delivery options.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Initially, the hours will be limited while we test the systems and build our volunteer base:
Mon & Tue: from 10.00 am
Thr: from 12 noon
Hours will be expanded as our capacity develops.
WHERE TO FIND US
The Cathedral Pantry operates from behind the Cathedral OpShop in Fitzroy Street (opposite Grafton Shopping World).
WHAT WE ARE ABLE TO OFFER
We are able to offer a limited supply of basic household items and non-perishable food items. People may choose between the following packages:
Family Food Pack (suitable for families with children)
Couples Food Pack (suitable for couples with o dependent children)
Singles Food Pack (suitable for people living alone)
Custom Food Pack (tell us what you need and we shall try to help)
WHAT COSTS ARE INVOLVED
A fee of $5.00 applies for a standard shopping bag quantity of mixed items, but people are encouraged to bring a small cardboard box of similar dimensions if they do not have shopping bags.
ALL PAYMENTS BY EFTPOS
There are no cash transactions and no cash will be held on the premises. All payments are to be made by tap and go cards.
Special thanks to friends and colleagues who have assisted us in the establishment of this project and in some case continue to be valued partners as we act together to address the real needs of everyday people here in Grafton and the Clarence Valley.
