Free food giveaway thanks

JAN Batchelor is thankful for the food she is given for free by attending the weekly pensioner food drop at Tweed Heads.

While there was little grocery items to be shared among the 30 or more pensioners who came yesterday for the food drop, Ms Batchelor, who lives in shared accommodation at a boarding house in Tweed Heads, was thankful to receive some fresh produce and bread.

“This is only my third time, but it (the service) really helps,” she said.

“I’m on an ‘off week’ for the pension, I don’t get paid until next week so I come here and get some fresh bread and eggs and things.

“It is a wonderful service and they give things we can’t afford, and pensioners wouldn’t normally buy like avocados and fruit.”

The food drop had no gro-cery items to giveaway yesterday until an anonymous couple donated a box of non-perishable items.

Organiser of the food drop, Banora Point pensioner, Terri Bradley said they needed a regular supply of grocery items to giveaway. If you can help call Ms Bradley phone 5523 3096.
