Mosman Street Pantry Initiative


—Speaker in response to mounting cost of living pressures, Madeline Godsell and Matt Giles have created a community street pantry for those who are struggling. Their project aims to ease the day-to-day pressures associated with the cost-of-living crisis, as well as reduce food waste in the lower north shore. The street pantry is positioned in a densely populated area of Mosman, where most people live in flats. As we all know, rent has been steadily increasing and household budgets are tightening. So this is a simple way of allowing those who might be doing it a little tough at the moment to grab an item or two from the pantry. The Street Pantry is a low-cost yet effective way to lend a helping hand to those who are struggling. It also allows those who might have over shopped to donate items so they don't go to waste. I commend Madeline and Matt for their generosity, ingenuity, and compassion for their fellow north shore residents. Together, they are a truly dynamic duo who are making a tangible difference to the north shore community. Thank you both for all you are doing.
