About Us

HandUp is a non-profit service, supported by volunteers and the kind donations of various companies and individuals. Because of this, we can offer bread, fruit and vegetables (depending on availability), as well as a range of other groceries at substantially reduced prices.

You may come in and shop as often as necessary - on a regular day-to-day basis, or just in those times when you're experiencing financial hardship.

The HandUp store stocks a range of food and other essentials including:

- Bread, fruit and vegetables

- Frozen and packaged food

- Treats for school lunch boxes

- Fresh meals

- Other groceries and toiletries

Membership costs just $4 per calendar year.
