Salvation Army Bolton Point Food Market
26th October 2023
The newly renovated salvation army Bolton point Food Market is officially open!
I was pleased to be able to support the project with a $23,176 grant through the Community Building Partnership program.
The Lakes Salvos Food Market provides an invaluable service to our area and is now double its original size, which allows more people to be able to access it.
The Food Market provides free and low cost groceries to people who are doing it tough financially.
The demand for welfare hampers from the Food Market has increased 650% in comparison to the same time last year.
I would like to thank the 30 volunteers who contribute to running this service and in particular Salvation Army officers Leanne and Peter Bennett.
The Food Market is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am - 2pm.
