Food Collective Partnership

Published on 26 July 2021

We are excited to announce that Living & Learning Nillumbik has partnered with Diamond Valley Community Support to be a part of The Food Collective Project. The aim of the Collective is to reduce barriers to food insecurity through collaboration, innovation and community connection.

A part of the Collective we have recently launched a Community Pantry at our Panton Hill Centre. The pantry is full of non-perishable food for community members who are experiencing food insecurity to help themselves to. It is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, require no appointments and are open to whoever needs food. The Community Pantry Network has a “Give what you can, take what you need” philosophy with people able to donate to the pantry as well.  Pantries consist largely healthy nutritious non-perishable food, toiletries and information to bring relief closer to where people need to access it. Donations are also accepted at our Eltham and Diamond Creek Centres during opening hours.
