BMCC Supporting the Community During COVID-19: Emergency Food Boxes for our most Vulnerable Residents
The Food Boxes – that contain a variety of non-perishable, long-life food – will be delivered to the doors of self-isolating households that meet the criteria of the program.
Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said the emergency care package would help relieve pressure, during the COVID-19 pandemic, on those who are most vulnerable in our community.
“These relief packages that contains food basics are a small way that Council can assist those in our community who need help the most, during this crisis,” Mayor Greenhill said.
“All requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and will be prioritised based on those in greatest need.
“Any resident can call Council to receive information and if they are not eligible, we will do our best to connect them with other assistance that is available within the community.”
The Rapid Relief Team – a volunteer not-for-profit organisation – has partnered with Council to deliver the supplies to those in need. The one-off relief packages will be provided at no cost to eligible recipients.
The Food Boxes will be delivered to the door of self-isolating households that meet the criteria. Clients will be informed in advance of the details of delivery of Food Boxes.
There is limited choice as to products provided and Council may not be able to cater for dietary and cultural requirements.
If you are a Blue Mountains resident over the age of 65, or are living with a disability, and are in urgent need please contact Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 4723 5000 (Lower Mountains) or 4780 5000 (Upper Mountains).
If you know someone who may be eligible for this program, please contact Council.
