Food voucher re­lief for those in need

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Manning -

LO­CAL honey and free-range eggs aren’t the only whole­some things avail­able at Southcare’s low-cost su­per­mar­ket Mankara in Man­ning.

Help­ful, cheer­ful vol­un­teers as­sess peo­ple’s needs and cir­cum­stances and if they need im­me­di­ate Emer­gency Re­lief (ER), may is­sue a food voucher to spend in the small su­per­mar­ket, which prides it­self on bet­ter value shop­ping for the most popular brands and af­ford­able prices.

Cus­tomers say they en­joy the fact that Mankara isn’t a big noisy place to shop and that the vol­un­teers are help­ful.

ER is funded by the Depart­ment of So­cial Ser­vices and Lot­tery­west, en­abling Southcare to of­fer im­me­di­ate as­sis­tance to clients in fi­nan­cial cri­sis. If a client has com­plex is­sues that may in­clude large debts, they are re­ferred to our fi­nan­cial coun­selling ser­vice that helps with bud­get­ing and ad­vo­cacy.

Re­lief can also in­clude cloth­ing and bed­ding from the Southcare Op Shop.

Mankara is open week­days, 8.30am2pm, and the op shop op­er­ates 9am-1pm week­days.
