Sited at the side of the Community House, the FoodShed is open for the Devonport community with fresh fruit & veg and day old bread.  We have produce from a variety of providers - Second Bite / Loaves & Fishes / Coles provide some free produce and day old bread; Community Garden provides tasty pesticide-free fruit & veg; Blustery Banks supplies delicious apples & pears; Tassie Pride provide fabulous capsicums and Fourways Fruit & Veg supplementary produce.   All donations are gratefully welcomed!

The FoodShed is OPEN weekdays strictly 2 – 3pm

Walk in to the community FoodShed and collect some cheap or FREE produce, depending what is available. Prices are a fraction of normal supermarket prices for most produce and no-one will be turned away if they do not have funds.  We purchase the majority of our fruit and veg and charge recovery prices only.  We welcome donations of home-grown produce.  On occasion, fresh and frozen cooked meals are available for those who can do with a hand.  We also have honey, jams, relish, sauce and other seasonal products we make in the House

Free Bread 2—4pm weekdays

Find our free day-old bread in the green bread-cart in the House driveway, just help yourself. Depending on amount available, the bread-cart will be left out till late.
