The NOURISH project is a coordinated and collaborative Neighbourhood House response to food insecurity in Maribyrnong. Five Neighbourhood House’s, Yarraville Community Centre, Angliss Neighbourhood House, West Footscray Neighbourhood House, Duke Street Community Centre, and Braybrook Maidstone Neighbourhood launched the project to rescue surplus food from landfill, which is transformed into healthy and nutritious meals and then delivered and provided for free for people doing it tough.
Nourish meals are prepared weekly at the Yarraville Community Centre kitchen, by qualified chefs, and are available frozen for pick up at the following locations
How to get involved?
We encourage you to get involved and reach out to your local favourite food businesses and ask them to donate food that they can no longer sell and would otherwise go to waste. Bulk items assist us in producing large batches of food. We love boxes of vegetables, adore tubs of cream or bottles of milk, and always cheer with delight when we receive cheese or meat donations!
