20 Year Celebrations Kicked Off with Community Dinner

This year marks twenty years in business for Community Foods, and to kick off a year of celebrations, the Co-Op hosted a community dinner at the German Club in Winkworth Street, Bungalow in February, 2017.

The dinner was put together with fresh produce and ingredients from Community Foods’ shop in Shield Street and donated food from Rusty’s Markets. Community Foods volunteers worked alongside Cairns Community Kitchen (CCK) volunteers to cook up a marathon feast.

Tricia Gates, one of the long-serving volunteers with Community Foods said there is much to celebrate.

“We’ve been flying in the face of convention since the beginning, when we were just a stall at Rusty’s Markets. We’ve always tried to fly high with our aims and objectives, and we’ve grown from strength to strength over the years.”

Organisers said the event attracted a record crowd and raised almost $300 for the Co-op, which will go towards further community-based celebrations throughout the year.
