Food voucher relief for those in need
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.
