Generosity a pantry staple

Limestone Coast Pantry has served up clothes and blankets to to help those in need as part of The SE Voice winter warmth community campaign.

Limestone Coast Pantry owner Lyn McLachlan is no stranger to helping the community, giving out free soup to anyone in need during the pandemic even though her business, like many others, was struggling.

Ms McLachlan also donated trays of loaded ‘Crouch Potatoes’ weekly to the Sunset Kitchen during this time to assist with their efforts to support the community in need.

Limestone Coast Pantry social media manager Yolande Langford said while all businesses have been hit hard by COVID-19, especially hospitality, there were always people that are worse off.

“Whenever Lyn hears about someone in need she tries to help and donate which is not always publicised, it’s that quiet assistance to anyone in need that is in her nature and so important in our world today,” she said.

“We just wanted to give back to the community that supported us during COVID-19 and anything we can do to give back to them is a great thing.

“Driving around Mount Gambier, you cannot help but to notice the people that do need help especially considering it has been such a cold winter.

“Anybody in town can get involved, as a community we should be able to help the homeless and disadvantaged people in our own region.

“It is a very worthwhile cause, and it is great for The SE Voice to get involved and be rallying the businesses.

“Thank you to The SE Voice for the opportunity to be involved and to actually give back and do something else to support the community.
