Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has thanked the Woy Woy Seventh-Day Adventist Church food pantry for its service.
The food pantry provides affordable groceries and resources to struggling families and members of the community, with food supplied by Foodbank in Sydney.
Ms Tesch said services like the Woy Woy Seventh-Day Adventist food pantry were essential in helping support those people affected by coronavirus.
“Given the global pandemic we are living through, many more members of our community are turning to support services for help, many for the first time,” Ms Tesch said.
Pastor Fred Chileshe said the service supported a variety of different people within the community.
He said that 30 to 40 families used the service every fortnight, with single mums and age pensioners using the service the most.
