Thanks to the hard work of Em and the volunteers at Heart & Soul Group, the Southern Community Pantry opened it’s doors on Monday 13th September.
You can find them off Ramsay Place, right next door to Wise Employment, 10am - 2pm Monday - Friday.
For some families having access to wholesome food for their families is a major worry. Heart and Soul are helping out by providing food assistance to community members in need. Fresh food and pantry items are redistributed at the Community Pantry by a wonderful team of empathetic volunteers who not only offer their time but also their friendship and support.
All of this is only made possible through partnerships with major supermarkets, corporate groups plus independent donors and sponsors. If you would like to volunteer or help in some way please visit the Heart & Soul Group ‘Get Involved’ page.
Local MP Amanda Rishworth facilitated the grand opening with MP Nat Cook, MP Katrine Hildyard and Onkaparinga Mayor Erin Thompson. It was a bit fresh outside for those waiting for the doors to open so a big thankyou to the Wise Employment Team who provided some warm drinks to those in line.
