A new initiative to support struggling families has begun at the Frank Konecny Community Centre.

The Plentiful Pantry initiative aims to help individuals or families in the area who may be experiencing financial difficulties and struggling to buy food.

A donations shelf has been placed at the front of Frank Konecny Community Centre, with non-perishable food items, recipes and other household supplies readily available for residents and families in need.

Project initiator Yvette King said the idea behind the pantry was to support those doing it tough by providing access to sufficient food items. “The pantry’s intention is to be accessible to all, and as self-sufficient as possible,” she said.

Mrs King said a pantry diary would be also available for anyone using the pantry to offer thoughts, ideas and suggestions.

Non-perishable food donations and pet food, household cleaning items, toiletries, nappies, colouring books and school supplies can be dropped at the centre from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.
