Food for the community
Bruce Kurtzer, along with his team of volunteers, is dedicated to serving South Australians with practical love and generosity. He does this through Faithworks – a food rescue service and Christian ministry.
Based in Blair Athol, the Faithworks Centre is a place where everybody is welcome, regardless of what situation they come from.
‘We see an imbalance, in that so much food is wasted, yet some people go without. We try to rescue some of the food that may otherwise go to waste and provide it to people who could use it’, says Bruce.
Faithworks has a range of free and low-cost items, which fluctuates depending on what’s available. The usual suspects include free bakery items, loaves of bread, and bags of fruit and veg. Pre-made takeaway meals, small gift packs, and other pantry items are available for purchase at a low cost.
Faithworks also supplies food to other agencies and churches around South Australia – a few of which are local support groups (LSGs) of Cornerstone – who then distribute it to those in need. Some areas include Ingle Farm, Salisbury, Parafield Gardens, Elizabeth, St Marys, Old Reynella, Murray Bridge, Berri, and Clare Valley.
Many of these groups have regular free food giveaways. The best way to keep up to date and get notifications about the giveaways is to follow Faithworks on Facebook.
