The community pantry at the Hub is managed by Diamond Valley Community Services and The Vine Baptist Church. It is located near the entrance to the Hurstbridge Basketball Stadium at the rear of the Hub. A community pantry is a cupboard full of non-perishable food, located in an accessible space for community members who are experiencing food insecurity. The Community Pantry Network has a “Give what you can, take what you need” philosophy, and donations of healthy, nutritious non-perishable food items are always welcome.

The Hurstbridge Hub is also home to the Food is Free project. The Hurstbridge Food is Free shelving is situated under the verandah outside the entrance to the Hub. The Food is Free project is a worldwide movement dedicated to increasing food security and community cohesion through access to nutritious, healthy food. Anyone in the community can take from the Hurstbridge Food is Free table, and you don’t need to contribute anything or leave items in its place.
