Executive officer Sue Tasker said the initiative was all about giving back.

It's not the first time the group has come together to support the town.

It opened the Community Cupboard, a spot where people can donate or take groceries, in February and had an overwhelming response. Locals came together then to donate items and it continues today.

"People can be so judgemental these days and we are here to take the stigma out of needing a hand,” Mrs Tasker said.

"People who use this aren't sitting at home on the dole or wasting their money.

"It's mostly poor working families and anyone who is doing to tough.”

Mrs Tasker said there would be a combination of soups and it may be a cup of soup or a homemade delight.

"The study group here also make homemade slices and we will look at a kitchen down the track if we can get funding,” she said.

Collection points for donations of food including cup-of-soup and household items are at the store and the IGA on Woongarra St.

Mrs Tasker also said there was now stock of beanies and blankets.
