Community Co-Op Northern Beaches Step Up During COVID-19 Crisis

Council is calling on Northern Beaches residents to open their pantries and donate spare canned food as well as non-perishable items as part of a food drive from Community Co-op Northern Beaches during the COVID-19 crisis.

In recent weeks Council has worked closely with a number of local support organisations to widely distribute food to those who are vulnerable.

With self-isolation and high levels of job losses and temporary lay-offs, many people and families are currently struggling.

At the forefront of the food drive have been Community Co-op Northern Beaches, who continue to pass on a high volume of items to the likes of The Salvation Army, Mission Australia, The Community Pantry, The Burdekin Association and the Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter.

“In these challenging times it’s great to see so many Northern Beaches residents donating food to support the most vulnerable in our community,’’ said Greg Jones from Community Co-op Northern Beaches.

“Donating just one item of non-perishable food makes a difference.”

Canned food and non-perishable items can include pasta sauce, cereal, muesli bars, biscuits, rice, pasta, cleaning products, toiletries and baby nappies/wipes.

All items need to be in good condition, sealed and within their use by date.

To pass on donations or to volunteer your time, simply join the Community Co-op Northern Beaches Facebook page and become a member.
