BCS Food 4 Life provides vulnerable people experiencing disadvantage with access to nutritional food. Clients with a Government benefit card register with the BCS Food 4 Life program and in return receive grocery products of their choice. Clients contribute a small donation to assist with the ongoing provision of the service, which promotes a sense of ownership and enhanced self-esteem for clients participating. All centres are staffed by volunteers, Work for the Dole participants and a manager. The food provided is sourced from a number of manufacturers and retailers, as products are withdrawn from general sales. The BCS Food 4 Life program is about partnering with the local community to build relationships and empower people to make life-transforming choices, for themselves and for their families. All BCS Food 4 Life centres offer a safe and welcoming environment, and the opportunity to sit and chat with volunteers and friends while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. Beyond providing much-needed food the service acts as a connection point, opening doors to other physical, emotional and spiritual support services.
