Pantry Club - A food relief program for people struggling financially

Pantry Club in Moruya has been running for twelve years and is open for anyone struggling financially, on a low income or on a CentreLink  benefit. Pantry Club is open to residents of the Eurobodalla Shire. They purchase their food and other products from Foodbank Sydney NSW and are not for profit and non-government funded.

Due to COVID 19 they are operating differently to ensure the safety of everyone. Pantry Club is now open on Wednesdays as well as their regular Thursdays from 10am to 1pm.

To become a member they briefly interview each person before offering three types of membership, single, couple and family.

The Pantry Club is located in the Community Centre of SouthernLife church ( next to the Moruya TAFE) offering Market Days on the third week of  the month where members can purchase new personal and household items at bargain prices.

This year they have given away hundreds of crisis hampers during the bush fire season and each year they distribute over a hundred Christmas hampers to those struggling in the community.

Manager Elizabeth told the Beagle "We welcome people of our community to come and join as a member of Pantry Club."
