The Forster Tuncurry Community Kitchen opened in July in the parish hall at 33 Lake Street, Forster, and serves lunch on Wednesdays and Thursdays between noon and 1pm.
CatholicCare staff and volunteers are responsible for ensuring the kitchen meets the needs of the local community and provides a friendly, warm and welcoming service to vulnerable people, but they are not alone. The parish will provide the facilities and some volunteers, and they welcome collaboration with the local primary school.
CatholicCare is seeking more volunteers to help run the kitchen and be required to pick up food donations and prepare and serve meals. To register your interest in becoming a volunteer or donor to the Forster Tuncurry Community Kitchen please contact CatholicCare on firstname.lastname@example.org
