The food is free and will include fresh produce such as fruit and veg, bakery products and chilled food like meat, cheese and ready meals.

Groups that can benefit from the Community Food Connection include homeless shelters, substance abuse rehabilitation services, after-school clubs, foodbanks and domestic violence refuges.
