Weekly Fresh Food Programs

Making sure access to fresh food is available to those in need

The LinC Fresh Food Team Millgrove

Our community says thank you

To all our volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the programs are delivered to the community. The majority of our food programs are run by our churches. The programs are also supported by SecondBite, Aldi (Seville), Outer East Foodshare, Silva Coffee Roasters and many other local businesses.

About the program

Hardship can happen to anyone and the cost of fresh food can make it difficult for people in need to maintain a balanced diet. Local churches in partnership with LinC, have been delivering these free programs to the community for over nine years. Every Friday fresh food is available to those in need to ensure everyone has access to fresh ingredients to prepare healthy meals.  Please bring your own bags.
