HOW IT WILL WORK
The Snag Island Community Garden Committee as well as volunteers will be sourcing the food, bringing it back to the Leeman Recreation Centre and setting up.
More volunteers are always welcome to come along and help out!
You do not have to live in Leeman to attend as everyone will be welcome as long as you have a eligible card or have a referral letter. (Referral letters can be obtained by contacting our committee using the form below)
The registration fee will be $20 each month that you attend
(Cash payment only at this stage)
When you arrive, you line up to register.
After showing us your valid benefits card,or referral letter, you then pay the registration fee and you will then be given a ticket.
Your ticket then entitles you to the following

When your ticket number is called you can then move around the shopping area choosing the food that you would like. We will supply the basket for you to put your shopping into while you shop. A limit of each item might apply. (up to 10 kilos including packaging)
After you have finished your shopping you will then bring your basket to the scales to be weighed by one of our friendly volunteers.
