Nourish the Hungry

Northern Beaches and surroundings

THRIVECRU, also known as Northgate Food Pantry, provides food relief service to vulnerable clients within the Northern Beaches, Hornsby, and Kuring-gai Shire areas.

Our team of volunteers works daily, from 9 am to 12:30 pm at our Community Hub. We nourish the hungry and families in need, including people with disabilities, the elderly, low-income earners, people with a chronic illness, and single parents.

We do not have any requirements/restrictions on who can access our fresh food hampers other than being contacted by the person in need, but we do make sure the most vulnerable receive food relief first.

Healing services and community programs

At ThriveCru, our motto goes beyond emergency relief services.

We believe in sharing the love of Jesus, experiencing Christian values, and building a community that thrives together. Therefore, we offer a safe environment for anyone in the community to relax, chat, receive prayer, or personal support.

We aim to provide a space where everyone, without distinction or discrimination, can nurture their body, soul, and mind.

 

Giving a friendly hand to someone in need today means an extra hand for anyone else in the near future.

Taking care of nature

Zero-waste Initiative

The Northgate Food Pantry and all of its food rescue initiatives, aim to reduce food waste. Our zero-waste approach starts by collecting surpluses of good quality food from supermarkets, bakeries, butcheries, and restaurants on the Northern Beaches and surrounding areas. This rescued food is given to people in need through our Food Pantry and its fresh food hampers. Additional products are made into jams, soups and juices ensuring they are also rescued from waste and enjoyed by the community. Organic compost bags are produced in the process and available for the community.
