Come and be motivated making a huge support mechanism. People from all walks of life volunteer their time and effort here at New Life Community Care. A lot of them are just like you and are making a difference in our community to people in hardship.

The Foodbarn operates with anywhere between 15-25 volunteers a day. Without them we could not operate this food relief service that assists thousands of Gold Coasters. Young and old, of all nations, and all abilities are welcomed. Students looking for work experience, those looking to make new acquaintances, those looking to make a difference... there is a place for you here.

Why not make time to be a part of our awesome team of volunteers for 5 to 6 hours a day any day that suits. Casual clothes are fine, just be sure to wear closed in shoes.

Centrelink Host

People looking for volunteer work positions Foodbarn is a host for Centrelink volunteer placements. Retired? Why not lend a hand for a few hours a week making a difference? Tradespersons, labourers, gardeners, hosts and transport and store persons are always needed in our busy day. All help keep our 3-acre complex serving the needs of our community.

Come, be a part of this awesome team helping lives and families cope a little better in these difficult times. If you're interested, please Contact us

"My husband suffered a back injury which resulted in him being unable to work, we went from a two income family to one.

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."

"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.

Due to 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."

"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."
