Serving the Community

Free Community Lunch

You are invited to come and join us for a communal lunch made from fresh seasonal produce every Wednesday. Delicious vegetarian meals prepared by our chef Emma and her helpers are available each week from midday on Wednesdays at Mitchell House. A gold coin donation if manageable, will be appreciated and help to offset costs.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT CATER FOR SPECIFIC DIETARY REQUIREMENTS. Free Community Lunch is not available during School Holiday periods or on public holidays.

Please book a seat in advance on 56723731 or email:

Community Pantry

Our Community Pantry or Free Food Shelf is there to help community members feed themselves and their family. Lots of families and individuals are doing it tough and sometimes need a little hand. Our Free Food Shelf is kindly supported by local
supermarkets, garden groups in the region and the generosity of individual community members and volunteers. If you have some spare non-perishable items in your pantry, or you buy a couple of extra cans of food, please feel free to drop them off.

Frozen Food

The recent purchase of a freezer through a grant received from the Bass Coast Shire, has enabled the Centre to safely preserve a significant quantity of bread, donated each week by local traders and frozen meals prepared in our own kitchen. The meals and bread are available on request to members of the community in need.

Simply call in to Mitchell House during office hours and ask!
