Helping hands around Gawler #4 UCare

I definitely like free things, so, over the next couple of weeks, I’m going around investigating the free stuff around Gawler. These will be things that you don’t need to sign up for, just visit anonymously.

Being typically me, my focus is on free food and information. I’ll steer away from money though.

These posts will be collated and listed on our page ‘Helping hands around Gawler‘.

Ucare

This post is about UCare.

UCare provides services through the Uniting Church on the corner of Tod Street and Scheibener Terrace in Gawler. It’s just across the road from Foodland.

UCare provides emergency assistance in the way of food parcels, blankets, hygiene packs, laundry assistance, showers and medical assistance.

They provide free food assistance daily, usually bread, fruit and vegetables as a drop in option.

Like many free food services, the range and availabity of the food is up to whatever their suppliers donate on the day. I’ve never been there on a day when there was nothing though.

Ucate have a wide range of other services available but we’re all about the food here. You can check out their website here.
