Southlake Marketplace first opened its doors in 2013.  The closest Foodbank was a 20 minute drive and the people most in need did not own a car or have enough money for petrol.

 

We opened our 1st premises in the old Lakes Mail building in Morisset and remained there for 18 months. We moved a few more times around Morisset till settling in our forever home at COORANBONG COMMUNITY CENTRE, 614 Freemans Drive Cooranbong.

Since 2013 we organise a big old fashioned xmas party for our clients. In 2019 we gave away 300 food hampers and toys for 350 children.
