Community groups join forces for local food support

The Rotary Club of Preston, Vic, actively supports the community outreach of Bridge Darebin and Reservoir Neighbourhood House (RNH), situated in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Since March, the two community organisations have not been able to safely deliver their usual weekly food and social support services under the COVID-19 restrictions.

Bridge Darebin normally runs a free weekly Friday lunch and Sunday dinner, with up to 80 attendees for each meal, who also receive a second meal and some grocery items to take home.

Reservoir Neighbourhood House provides a daily community pantry with free grocery items and breads, monthly community lunches, weekly soup days and grocery support to local public housing estates via Foodbank.
