Community Thrifty Food
What does this organisation do?
We have a low cost shop which is open to everyone, no cards required. Free fresh fruit, veg and bread. No purchase required to collect free stuff, which we collect everyday we are open from Second Bite. In our personal cars, we really require a refrigerated van & a non refrigerated van for collections & deliveries.
We have grocery items for sale, prices starting from 20¢ - 95% of the stuff we sell comes from Foodbank.
Currently we are a home based community business. With plans on getting a shop in a commercial area, very soon as we are growing much faster than we ever imagined, but not having the funding is what's holding us back at this point.
There is nothing like us anywhere, We started this because we seen the amount of food going to waste & yet so many families miss out on the basics. With community minded people operating this you'll have a piece of mind knowing there is somewhere you can go for extremely cheap & free food.
The shop is currently called Thrifty Food & Stuff Community Food. Once we have the funding we will go under our registered charity Community Thrifty Food.
With your support & vote we will be able grow & help a lot more people then we do at this point.

Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
Communities experiencing locational disadvantage
Where people live affects their access to social and economic opportunities and therefore their relative advantage or disadvantage. Some South Australian communities have entrenched disadvantage.
