SSI was successful in receiving a grant in the 2013 Auburn ClubGRANTS Scheme.

The grant will be used by SSI to purchase items from Foodbank NSW that will be given to clients. This will help ensure clients have access to staple items such as rice, oil and flour. The high cost of living in Sydney is an added challenge faced by many of SSI's clients. The need for a source of additional food items for clients has inspired SSI to register with Foodbank NSW, a non-denominational, community supported not-for-profit that collects unwanted food and re-distributes it to people in need through welfare agencies who can purchase items at a bulk rate.
