Help provide meals to people in crisis throughout the Corona Virus Pandemic!
We’re spreading love and kindness throughout FNQ with the Community Pantry!
Welcome to the Community Pantry a local food distribution hub for those struggling to put food on their table.
From canned meals to bags of rice and pasta, your generous donations will help make this challenging time for many families who would otherwise go without.
On your next visit, spare a thought, pay it forward and place an item in your cart and drop in the crates provided adjacent to Woolworths and Coles.
Every day, the Salvos gives hope to individuals and families in need by providing food hampers and gifts. Hampers are prepared with care using donated goods and shared with those in the community who simply need a helping hand.
