Byron Community Pantry

A food outreach program for people unable to physically or financially shop

Project Outline

The Byron Community Pantry is a food outreach service made possible by Allygroup’s generous donation. The Byron Community Centre has been offering food outreach services for over 14 years. Due to the current health crisis and the new regulations which resulted in job loss for many Byron Shire locals, the demand for essential services like counselling or help with meals and groceries has drastically increased.

About the Project

The Byron Community Pantry is available to anyone unable to financially or physically shop. Food boxes can be provided with vegan, vegetarian and meat options to all people in need.

For this service, the Byron Community Centre receives hands-on support from Liz Jackson and her team from Liberation Larder. Moreover, the Byron Community Centre continues the great work of the Northern Rivers Pantry Project. 

Liz Jackson manages the food preparation including the management of cooks, staff and purchasing of packaging. Helen Hamilton, President of the Byron Bay Community Association, is initially coordinating this effort together with Byron Community Centre staff. The Byron Community Centre provides staff to assist with phone enquiries, food packaging and some volunteers for deliveries and administrative tasks.
