  • Food Pantry

    We realise how difficult it can be for some people to provide for themselves and their families when they are facing tough times. If you find yourself in such a situation, or know someone who is, please visit our Food Pantry located outside of the Community House. People in need are welcome to take food from the pantry and anyone can donate food (we rely on donations from the caring community). We only ask that you donate non-perishable items of food that is within their use by date. Please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion, this will help us to better provide for the needs of our community. We hope that we can keep this food pantry well stocked through the generosity of our wonderful community. Food sustains us, food connects us. Food is life! So if you can have a look at what you aren’t using or have extra supply of and consider donating surplus items to the Food Pantry located outside of Rosanna Fire Station Community House it would be really appreciated. Thank you.
