Free Food Pantry

We have collaborated with Kaivolution to become a food distribution hub. Food is collected from supermarkets which is past its best by date. It is food that cannot be sold but is still good to eat. It will be mostly bread and some fresh produce and pantry food. We will not know how much or what produce there will be until it arrives. We distribute every day from 11:00 am until we run out of food. Bring your own bag or containers. Any leftover food is put into our pataka which is at the front of the house by the footpath.
