Mt Alexander Community Pantry

The Mount Alexander Community Pantry was established to meet the needs of people in the community who were adversely impacted by the initial onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was always anticipated that this collective community response would be a temporary service to assist people who were unable to leave their homes to access food, or who were facing financial difficulty due to job losses.

With restrictions easing, the Mount Alexander Community Pantry will end our service on Friday 10th July.

If you are unable to shop for cook food for yourself, alternative services such as Meals on Wheels and the Castlemaine Community Lunch may be available to meet your needs;
