What Neighbourhood Houses & Centres are doing
Tackling hunger is at the core of many Neighbourhood houses and centres do, with many working hard within their communities to alleviate food insecurity.
Across our houses you will typically see food parcels being available to members of the community, cheap healthy and nutritious lunches that bring the community together, and community gardens that teaches how to grow sustainable and healthy food.
To ensure that our programs are accessible to everyone many of Houses/ Centres will deliver food parcels to vulnerable people.
