EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE

If you are in an emergency food situation where you have little or no food available then please proceed to register below. Please note we will always try our utmost best to help all genuine cases but our capability is very limited.


We are relying on kind donations from the congregation and the temples own food store which is limited so please only apply if you have no other resource or ability to obtain essential food to survive and are in a real critical situation.  Help us to help those that really need it.

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE TEMPLE! Temple remains closed during the lock down. After receiving your application we will contact you to arrange a delivery on Saturday or Sunday 12pm - 6pm. Please be at home and answer your phone as we cannot arrange repeat delivery till week after.
