Moruya Business Chamber ask "Can you help local families this Christmas? Would you consider introducing a ‘social enterprise initiative’ in your workplace where employees donate one or more pantry items for families in need?" Businesses are being asked to focus on Christmas, if items could be donated during December they will be collected by a volunteer from South Coast Community Kitchen.
Sarah O’Reilly and other volunteers of South Coast Community Kitchen (SCCK) have been running SCCK since 2019 providing fresh and packaged food for low income families in Batemans Bay and Moruya. Sufficient fresh food comes from Woolworths and Coles but there is a need for pantry items i.e. pasta, pasta sauce.
