Canberra City Care is an outreach mission of Life Unlimited Church and aims to support and empower people across Canberra through the provision of low cost food, clothing and household goods and computer services, whilst providing a welcoming and safe environment.
Canberra City Care (CCC) provides support for approximately 300 households across Canberra and some 60 volunteers make this possible.
CCC has four main service streams:
- HandUp Food – which is a food pantry with basic grocery items, including bread, fresh vegetables and low cost meals prepared from our kitchen
- ReRuns Opportunity Shop – provides clothing and basic household items including toys and games for children and families.
- Harvest Garden and Kitchen – maintains an extensive community garden that supplies fresh produce directly into the food pantry and supplies the kitchen with fresh produce to support low cost meal preparation.
- Tech Shed – conducts computer recycling, repair and rebuilds of computers to support low income households with basic IT support and requirements.
Sewing Group- Supply a range of clothing items into the Opportunity Shop and sew aprons and bags for other charity organisations.
