For over a decade, IM Caring has served the marginalised in Brisbane city. We have distributed thousands of free food parcels containing wholesome foods, soft drinks and juices, fruit, vegetables, and personal items.
Our help ranges from in-home set up including furniture, household items, bedding and electrical items, to soup kitchen and crisis care packs of food and personal hygiene items.
No child should ever go hungry or cold, yet in Brisbane hundreds do. Children are high on our agenda.
