Waterbridge community pantry in need of funding

by Brighton Council

The Waterbridge Food Co-Op, which helps address the chal­lenge of food security in our community by providing low-cost ready-made meals and hot lunches, is currently unfunded.

Since mid-2022, the Water­bridge Food Co-Op has pro­duced more than 18,000 meals for the Brighton community. However they are in danger of having to close down due to a lack of funding which could see this service removed from our community at a time when many families are really doing it tough.

The pantry supports meaning­ful connections and reduces social isolation by reaching out to vulnerable members of our community. In addition to low cost healthy food and produce, they help the community by employing locals and training them in food handling and retail practices.

Up until recently, the Water­bridge Food Co-Op was sup­ported by grants to keep the service going. While they are currently in talks with politi­cians and local services to help save Waterbridge Co-Op, they are reaching out to all in the community to help however they can. If you have a positive expe­rience with the pantry, or want to get involved, contact Kylie on 0487 267 375 or email orders@waterbridgefood.com.au.

The Waterbridge Food Co- Op ready-made frozen meals and produce are available for purchase via their shop, Wa­terbridge Pantry, located at 191 Lamprill Circle Herdsman’s Cove, or by delivery. For more details, head to their website www.waterbridgefood.com.au.
