The locals of Yarrabah were struggling for a solution to access necessary food and sanitary requirements, which was restricted due to lock-downs.
Total Food Network saw an opportunity to supply fresh food into the community and within 36 hours of conversation, they were selling supplies from the back of two trucks.
The first morning saw over 1,200 people on site, and within two weeks, they have secured a permanent 6 month tenancy in a community hall allowing them to offer groceries. A gelato ice cream bar will also be set up to ‘spark joy’ for the kids to come and shop too.
Total Food Network donated two pallets of Easter eggs to the local hospital and are now supplying the local aged care home.
They have since also made contact with other indigenous partnership organisations and will start with five different communities in the same vein however much more remote.
