Mutual Aid & Solidarity
Excess food is in abundance throughout society from supermarkets and grocers, to cafes and restaurants. As a result, the GRANT community has come together to provide a publicly accessible space for people to take the food they need, or leave any items that they may have in excess. The vast majority of this food is rescued, with some being donated from people and other groups who find they do not know where the food can go before it becomes wastage. We encourage all who use the food pantry to ensure that it is kept tidy and is regularly cleaned so that the space is hygienic as possible.
Please join in on reducing the amount of food waste that surrounds us and head up the driveway and out the back of 130 Davey St, Hobart where you will find refrigerator’s and cupboards that store fruit, vegetables, bread, dry goods and so much more!
First Nations support
GRANT recognises the impact that colonisation and imperialism continues to have on so-called Australia and First Nations people. We act in solidarity with the palawa pakana people in their fight for truth telling and healing through treaty.
Indigenous deaths in custody, incarceration and the removal of children from their families are shameful realities that has stemmed from racist government policy from the state. GRANT will call-out these injustices and stand with the palawa pakana community where we have permission to do so.
We have a thriving community garden at 130 Davey St! All are welcome to contribute and enjoy the process of growing, nurturing and harvesting from this little part of the earth. The garden hosts a range of seasonal plants which are a common occurrence in our Monday night dinners. If you are interested in learning how to grow certain foods, what resources and time it takes to do so – please come along and join in!
GRANT acts in solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual) community. LGBTQIA+ rights are an inequality issue because LGBTQIA+ individuals face discrimination, marginalisation, and systemic inequalities. The denial of basic rights and protections, being subjected to violence and hate crimes, and facing social stigmatisation are not things GRANT stands for and we will always show our support for this community.
