Picking up the Pieces, Penrith
Picking up the Pieces provides:
- A mobile hospitality trailer which serves meals each Wednesday night alternating between a local Department of Housing complex (Torton Place) and the homeless community who meet in Penrith in a central location in the CBD. This outreach to the homeless is done in partnership with a local community organisation called Mama Lana’s Community Foundation.
- Emergency Food Hampers. We provide emergency food hampers for those doing it tough and who need a hand to get through a rough patch. Referrals come through the Department of Housing, Wentworth Area House and Penrith City Council.
- Our Christmas Day Lunch is for anyone who finds themselves alone on Christmas Day. Our volunteers come from both within the church and the community. Local businesses help with donations of food and gifts. We seek to provide a welcoming, family atmosphere in order to create a happy and memorable Christmas for everyone who joins us.
