Community Services #1 Food Pantry

The Community Services #1 (CS#1) Food Pantry is a small community food outlet for people with a genuine need or those who are on a limited income. It makes good food affordable and accessible.

The food in our pantry is provided by FoodBank NSW and Community donations.

If you’re on a low income, are unemployed, or struggling to get by, shopping at the Food Pantry will help stretch your budget. We have a variety of quality groceries and household products at affordable prices.

How you can help

Volunteer – The CS#1 Food Pantry is supported by volunteers. Consider volunteering with us to help!

Donate – If you are a local individual or business that would like to contribute we welcome donations of food, toiletries and cleaning products. Donations of non perishables can be dropped off at 63 Boolimba Cres Narrabundah on weekdays between 9am and 4pm.

Sponsor – Monetary donations are welcome and will help us to purchase products that we can’t always source cheaply (such as nappies, coffee and hygiene products). The more sponsors we receive, the more people we can help in our community.
