HUNDREDS of Logan families have been given a helping hand with Tribe of Judah's food give-away last weekend.
Pastor Terry Walker said hundreds of families lined up on Monday morning, but there were even more on the Saturday.
"We feed about 4000 people a week,” he said.
"For every person who comes in here, that equates to helping four people, but probably more as a lot of people have larger families.”
Pastor Terry said the need for services such as his were only increasing, as families found themselves struggling financially.
"We give food away daily,” he said.
"Usually on a Monday it's quite, but last Monday there were hundreds.
"Thursday, Friday and Saturday are our biggest days.”
Pastor Terry he was finding there were more and more young families and elderly people accessing the service.
"For the elderly it's the rising cost of living, and they just don't get a lot of money,” he said.
"It's pretty painful for them.
"And young families, when you think about the cost of rents they are just so expensive.
"Families are probably paying $400-$500 a week in rent.”
Pastor Terry said anyone was able to access the service at Tribe of Judah.
”We don't like doing a means test, so what we usually do is just talk to people,” he said.
”If you want to come onto our system it's $10 for six months, and you get a daily message saying what food is available for free and what is for sale.”
The service has recently moved from Queens Rd, Kingston to 101 Park Rd, Slacks Creek.
