VICTORY Care Services is used to helping those in need. This time they were in need as water flooded their food storage premises at Barter St early yesterday.
Church volunteers helped shift 30 pallets of food and a 20-pallet freezer to higher ground on Sunday night before goods were ruined.
Victory Church community pastor Kev Dailly said it was the second flood at the food centre.
"It's important to listen to the guys that have been here a long time and just move out," he said.
Run by the Victory Church, Victory Care Services provides high-value food hampers to people in need for $25.
Pastor Dailly said they were expecting building damage and general clean-up but would hope to be back in operation by tomorrow.
