Food for the Neighbours
Supporting our Local Community
We are excited to be able to help our local neighbourhood, so at the beginning of our first lockdown this year we made up a box of non-perishable food and left it on the steps of our church, for community members to access if they have a need or wish to contribute.
We advertise via the Deakin student facebook page, in the hope that we can ease the lives of students who may be experiencing financial difficulty. The box is regularly checked and topped up, but anyone is welcome to add or take items.
We are grateful to be able to help our community make a difference to each other, in this small way.
