Greek Australian households in financial need will receive an Easter Hamper in a joint effort between the Greek Orthodox Parishes and the Greek Welfare Centre Victoria. For over two decades the Greek Welfare Centre Victoria of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia has taken the leading role in organising and co-ordinating an Easter and Christmas Food Hampers Appeal with the solid support of the Parish Network of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and the Greek-Australian Community of Victoria.

The Greek Welfare Centre once again calls upon the Greek-Australian community to demonstrate their ‘filotimo’ (φιλότιμο) and contribute as much as they are able. Any non-perishable food items, are welcome.

Greek Australian businesses

The Greek Welfare Centre would like to encourage more Greek-Australian businesses to give generously to our Easter Food Appeal. The more we collect, the more we are able to distribute through our volunteer network to disadvantaged Greek – Australian families in Metropolitan Melbourne

What can be donated?

Health and practical reasons restrict the collection to non-perishable food items. These items may include; oil, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits, canned food (including vegetables, meats, hams etc), sauces, flour, spices, snacks etc. Before purchasing or dropping off such items to the collection points, please check the use-by dates and that there are no ruptures to the packaging.
