You Make This Fresh Start Possible

With up to 40,000 meals served in our dining room every year, the ongoing shortage of fresh produce across Australia poses a serious challenge when it comes to planning healthy meals.

Thankfully, your kindness has helped us find a creative solution – right in our own backyard.

Since earlier this year, our Pathways Gardening Group have been regularly harvesting fresh herbs and vegetables from Hutt St Centre’s very own garden.

Mitch*, who takes part each week, shared:
