Sunshine Coast "Free Little Pantry" Locations


Many groups in the community are providing collection / distribution points to provide emergency supplies for those in need.

First National Coastal is a proud supporter of the Free Pantry" movement, an initiative which provides goods for those who find themselves unable to afford the basic necessities in life.

Here are some ideas of things people in need will find useful:

⚫  Tinned and packet ready-to-eat meals (Eg Chunky Soups, Pasta & Sauce, Baked Beans, Noodles)
⚫  Long life milk & fruit-juice (200mL & 1L)
⚫  Rice, pasta, pasta sauce
⚫  Non-perishable meat (Eg Jerky, Tinned Chicken/ Tuna/ Sardines/ Spam/ Ham)
⚫  Tinned Fruit and Vegetables
⚫  Breakfast items (Eg Instant Oats Sachets, Kellogs variety packs, breakfast biscuits etc)
⚫  Peanut butter and vegemite (small plastic jars preferred)
⚫  Sachets of Sugar, Tea & Coffee
⚫  Snacks (Eg non perishable dip and biscuits, salsa, muesli bars, multi-packs of chips / savoury biscuits, )
⚫  Biscuits (Eg Saladas, VitaWeet, breakfast biscuits)
⚫  Feminine hygiene products
⚫  Toiletries (Eg toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, sunscreen, combs, soap, cottonbuds, bodywipes, 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner)
⚫  First-Aid supplies (eg travel first-aid-kits, bandaids, insect repellant, sanitiser)
⚫  Baby supplies (eg formula, nappies, wipes)
