About

How can we help you.

Southlakes Incorporated first opened its doors in 2013. The closest Foodbank was a 20 minute drive and the people most in need did not own a car or have enough money for petrol.

We opened our first premises in the old Lakes Mail building in Morisset and remained there for 18 months. We moved a few more times around Morisset till settling in our forever home at Cooranbong Community Centre, 614 Freemans Drive, Cooranbong, NSW 2265.

Since 2013 we have organised a big old fashioned Christmas party for our clients. Christmas 2020 saw us provide free hampers and toys to 1300 families.
