About

It is hard to go to sleep when you know there is no food for your family the next day

About

Christine (Founder) saw a need in her community in 2012. There were 2 foodbanks operating, 20 minutes north and 40 minutes south of Morisset but there was no public transport to either.

We started out in a tiny little room and stayed there for 12 months, we then moved on to a change room on a sports field for 18 months. Till we finally found our forever home at the rear of Cooranbong Community Centre.

10 years later in 2022 we have two walk in food shops in Cooranbong and Lake Munmorah, we also home delivery every Wednesday from Fennells Bay to Wyong and out to Gwandalan.

It takes a team of thirty-five volunteers to keep the Central Coast and Lake Macquarie fed each week and 90% of those volunteers started out as our customers.

During Covid’s two lockdowns we home delivered our free food hampers to 26,000 people. We still do not know how we did it!

Everyone here at Southlake’s Inc believe no one should go hungry in Australia.
