About Us

Tuckerbox is a food outlet designed to assist people struggling to meet their budgets. The food is provided by Foodbank NSW. Pensioners, people living with disabilities, and working families on tight budgets are members of Tuckerbox.

The annex at the back of the church is transformed into a small grocery and afternoon tea centre on Saturdays from 2 pm to 4 pm. Groceries, bread, dairy products and fresh fruit and vegetables are available for a nominal handling fee. Holy Cross volunteers manage and run Tuckerbox. Participation is by an annual membership fee of $2 per family.

All are welcome to drop in for afternoon tea, a chat, to browse and to shop.
