A new partnership will provide ongoing support for Comfort Kitchen, a much-loved, weekly nutritious meal, providing food and company for community members in need.

We are incredibly grateful to the Hervey Bay RSL, who this week committed $1000 per month to Comfort Kitchen, for the next 12 months.

This ongoing support will help ensure Comfort Kitchen, which is run entirely on donations and volunteer time, continues to provide close to 100 meals per week to those in our community who are socially isolated or financially struggling.

HBNC CEO, Tanya Stevenson, expressed her heartfelt thanks to the Hervey Bay RSL.

“Comfort Kitchen could not happen without the support of the community, and a contribution as significant as this will make an incredible difference to this vital program,” Tanya said.

“The funds will help cover the costs of purchasing food each week, which is increasingly challenging as cost of living pressures rise.

“We know many people in our community rely on Comfort Kitchen to receive a hot, nutritious meal each week, and to gather with friends, so I am incredibly grateful to the Hervey Bay RSL for helping keep it going.”

RSL committee member, Robert Garland, visited Comfort Kitchen on Wednesday evening to announce the sponsorship.

He took the opportunity to acknowledge the volunteers who work tirelessly each week to prepare and serve a three-course meal.

Robert also received a Neighbourhood Share Plate as a token of HBNC’s gratitude for the donation.
