The Pantry

The Pantry provides practical assistance to support people who are struggling financially.

People who live in the inner north and inner west of Brisbane who have a HealthCare Card or a Pension Card can come along to The Pantry for free fresh fruit, vegetables and bread. There is no need to make an appointment. Please bring along your HealthCare or Pension Card when you visit.

Visitors to The Pantry will also have a chance to talk to us about how else we might be able to help.

The Pantry is reliant on a minimal amount of funding and is supported by the work of a team of volunteers and the donations of many local people, churches and businesses including Banneton Bakery at Ashgrove, Fruity Capers at Toowong Village, Brumbys at Red Hill, OzHarvest and SecondBite.

What do we offer?

Food vouchers
Non-perishable food items
Fruit and vegetables

Visitors to The Pantry can also use the onsite internet café, which is open from 10:30am-12:30pm on Mondays and 9:30am-12:30pm on Thursdays. 

Morning tea is provided free of charge and is a good chance to catch up with others in the community. Counselling and referral is also available.
