- $100K-PLUS ON OFFER WITH OUR COMMUNITY FUND
The rich red-earth fields, fat cattle and general air of rustic charm give the South Burnett region the postcard-perfect image beloved by tourists and urban dwellers craving their occasional dose of “country”. But just beneath the surface there’s another story; one of poverty and struggle. As in virtually every other corner of Queensland, some people here are doing it tough to the extent of going hungry. But not if Jim Bennett and his hardy team of volunteers can help it.
For nearly seven years, their South Burnett Pantry has put food on the table, and dignity into the lives, of local residents. Three days a week, people from Murgon to Benarkin converge upon a modest shed in Kingaroy’s industrial fringe to stock up on groceries, household essentials, and low-cost second-hand clothes and furniture through the thrift shop. The need is immense – each week sees around 90 visitors selecting critical food items, and this doubles in the lead-up to Christmas when limited household budgets fray at the seams.
The pantry runs on the smell of an oily rag, powered by hope, tenacity and whatever grants it can secure. That’s where the Ergon-Energex Community Fund comes in: under last year’s program, the pantry received a grant to put a solar array on the roof of their rented premises, helping to offset the operating costs of powering cold rooms, freezers, lights and urns.
Under this year’s Fund, there’s more than $100k available to community groups, sporting clubs, charities, schools and non-profits to bring amazing projects to life in every corner of Qld. You can apply for up to $5000, and successful applicants will go to a vote for another $5000 under our first People’s Choice poll. We’re particularly keen to see applications from communities battling to overcome natural disasters, as well as ideas which make Qld safer, smarter, stronger and better – ideas like the South Burnett Pantry.
The pantry is the ultimate in a grassroots endeavour making a real difference to the community, with 35 volunteers working wonders: in addition to running the pantry and thrift shop, there’s a weekly truck trip to Brisbane to collect from Foodbank, catering for breakfast programs to 14 schools across the South Burnett, shopping at local providers, a cook-up to provide meals for more than 100 people every Friday, and emergency relief.
“The need is getting greater,” says Jim Bennett. “It’s symptomatic of the very real struggle of a lot of people in regional Queensland and it’s across the board – the elderly, the young, people with physical and mental health issues, families with young kids, people you wouldn’t think needed a hand. Thanks to the Community Fund as well as great support from the council, local businesses and government grants, we’re able to assist people with dignity.”
