"The Foodbarn has been helping me and my household for months now.
We are all fulltime students with rigorous schedules and the Foodbarn enables us to survive working slightly less. There is no way we could make it without help the foodbank had given us over the previous months.
To be able to come home and have a good supply of food makes coming home after studying long hours a lot easier.
We are extremely thankful."
"I would like to thank Pastor Phil and the wonderful volunteers and service Pastor Phil has provided to me through the Food Barn Arundel.
Formerly a bank manager and then part time broker I have two children suffering from mental illness and came from Domestic violence where we left everything and began again. With increased caring needs for my children I have had to become a fulltime Carer and as such my income reduced considerably.
I was introduced to the food barn by another person who overheard my discussion with the bank who were threatening to foreclose on our home if I didn't clear the arrears within two months. I sold anything of worth and the bank gave me a repayment plan over the next three months and with the awesome generosity of the food parcels I was able to provide not only the food for my family but make up the repayments every fortnight on my mortgage.
Pastor Phil and the food bank saved my home.
I still rely on the Foodbarn and try hard not to every week so others who are less fortunate then me that week can benefit. I could never afford the amount of food that is provided at the supermarket and Thank god every day for the blessings of pastor Phil and the New Life FoodBarn.
So thank you Pastor Phil without you we wouldn't have a home and would have lost everything and we are very grateful."
"My husband suffered a back injury which resulted in him being unable to work. we went from a two income family to one.
With the bills not stopping and hungry teenager to feed we found Pastor Phil and his team at New Life Church as we were searching for food parcels. This service has fed my family for at least 4 months and has enabled us to "keep our heads above water".
We cannot express our sincere gratitude for the generous help we have received.
We will continue to tell family and friends of the wonderful benefits of this community service and ministry.
