Cooking Program

The Cooking Program operates from 10.00AM to 1.00PM on a Monday and provides an opportunity for people to build their cooking skills to support a nutritious diet with minimum cost. Participants are able to enjoy their cooking at an informal luncheon after the program. The cooking program prepares extra meals which are frozen. These meals are given out in emergency relief parcels when needed.

Christmas Day Dinner

Each year UCW hosts a Christmas Day Dinner at St. Stephen’s Uniting Church for many people in the community who find themselves alone on this day.  Local businesses generously donate food and resources to make this a very special day for all who attend.   Volunteers from the community greatly assist the organization of the day.
