Donate goods

Radisson staff member donating food to our Meals Program

Support Sacred Heart Mission by donating goods either to our op shops or donating vital goods to our services.

Donate to our op shops

For our op shops to continue supporting the work of the Mission, we need donated quality goods to sell at the op shops and for customers to buy them. Donations of good quality furniture, books, clothes, shoes, accessories, bric-a-brac and household items are always needed and much appreciated. Read about donating to our op shops here and organise a free collection here

Donate to our Meals Program

Our Meals Program provides 400 free meals every day of the year to people who are experiencing homelessness and disadvantage. Almost all ingredients we use are either donated or rescued food (edible food that will otherwise go to waste).  

If you would like to donate food items or wish to arrange a collection of food donations on our behalf, please contact our reception on (03) 9537 1166 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Food and items we always need

While our needs are changing all the time, below is a list of items that we always need to help keep our food bank cupboards stocked:

  • Plain flour
  • Rice (white long grain preferred)
  • Honey
  • Cereal - muesli
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tomato paste
  • Chicken, beef or vegetable stock
  • Dishwashing liquid and washing up gloves
