The Little Community Pantry
Noosa Civic Shopping Centre is proud to support‘The Little Community Pantry’, a community food drive which encourages the donation of non-perishable food items to a collection point in the Centre for distribution locally to those in need.
Delivered by OzHarvest Sunshine Coast, the initiative encourages people to contribute to ‘The Little Community Pantry’ by either collecting an extra food item during their shop, or donating surplus unopened food items from home.
OzHarvest Sunshine Coast Coordinator, Michele Lipner, said the new initiative will provide great benefits for the local community.
“I am thrilled OzHarvest Sunshine Coast is entering into this wonderful partnership with Noosa Civic, in a true example of locals helping locals,” Ms Lipner said.
‘The Little Community Pantry’ donation point is located near Woolworths in Noosa Civic Shopping Centre, and all donations of sealed non-perishable, glass-free food items are very much welcomed.
In particular, the program welcomes donations of:
- Rice and pasta
- Canned fruit and vegetables
- Long life milk and juice/poppers
- Breakfast and whole grain cereals
- Canned protein foods e.g. tuna, salmon, stews (ring pull cans only please)
- Tea and coffee
- Dried fruits
