Empty shopping trolley in supermarket aisle

Anglicare Richmond is selling low-cost groceries every Wednesday until the end of March, to help community members stretch their budgets further. From 10.00am until 2.00pm on Wednesdays, Hawkesbury locals can pick-up a bag of groceries from the store’s Community Pantry for a $10 donation (limit two bags per customer per visit), without having to show a Centrelink card.

The selection of groceries changes depending on what’s available from charity Food Barn, but the pantry always has staples including breakfast cereal, long-life milk, and tinned goods like spaghetti.

Shoppers do not need to register, however they are encouraged to fill-out a simple survey which will help determine whether the Pantry will be permanent.

This may determine whether your local pantry will be permanent.

Anglicare Richmond is located at 231 Windsor Street. The team is currently preparing for its Winter Appeal, and is accepting monetary donations in-store.
