The Brighton Food Hub Ini­tiative is a community service that aims to provide affordable and nutritious food, without the need to show a concession card.

Tasmanian Labor Leader, Re­becca White, visited the volun­teers behind the Brighton Food Hub Initiative recently to dis­cuss the rising cost of living and what could be done to support those struggling with increasing food prices.

“The rising cost of food is mak­ing it unaffordable for many households to keep their fami­lies fed,” Ms White said. “I regu­larly hear how people are forced to choose between heating and eating and it’s only getting worse. Initiatives like the Brigh­ton Food Hub will offer low cost grocery items each fortnight for members of the community who need some help to manage the rising cost of living. Access to affordable food is becoming increasingly difficult and more people are visiting Jordan River Services Bridgewater and Gagebrook Community Houses to have a weekly hot meal or to access bread and other staples.”

In addition to these food relief services, the Brighton Food Hub will offer affordable food to community members once it starts operating in August from the Brighton Civic Centre.

The Hub plans to operate each Thursday fortnight between 11am and 2pm, with a branch out service for working people unable to attend during the day.
