A FOOD charity that feeds the needy is encouraging people to visits its op shop to support its ongoing operations.

Theodora House Cheerful Givers, founded by Gina Poulos, said the shop is “a little out of the way” and people may not know of its existence.

“It’s great if people buy something from the op shop,” she said.

The cheerful givers dish out about 1000 food parcels each week thanks to support from the Langwarrin Hotel who pitch in about $1000 a month to keep food flowing to those who most need it.

Ms Poulos said there is an “everything for $5” sale at the op shop in the months of August and September.

The feedback, outreach centre and op shop are located at 24 Whitford Way, Frankston.

Volunteers are always welcome.

See or call 0413 807 763 for more information.
