NSW’s first Mobile Community Pantry will be coming to Liverpool on Thursday, 21 July, to provide affordable groceries to low income families.
The pantry will open its doors from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm at the corner of Graham and Chrysanthemum Avenues, Lurnea every second Thursday from 21 July.
“For a $10 contribution, eligible members in the community – those with a Pension, Health Care or Immigration Card – can come to collect up to $60 worth of food per bag. They can purchase a maximum of two bags, which means they will be taking home up to $120 worth of groceries for $20,” explains Teresa Clark, Anglicare service leader.
“By saving here, it will help people pay other essential items like rent, electricity and water bills. It may also come in handy when unexpected events, such as a sudden hospital visit or car breakdown, tightens that week’s budget.”
The Mobile Community Pantry relies on volunteers to assist with food distribution. Members of Liverpool South Anglican Church have put up their hands to help people in their local community who may be struggling to put food on the table.
