The aim of Hornsby Connect is to provide support and hope to those that need it most within the community. With a growing population, the Hornsby Shire covers a large region and has fallen victim to the many social issues that are reflected within the wider society.

One major issue identified is the isolation and dislocation that some experience within our community. Whether it be the elderly or the young, due to cultural separation, or people experiencing financial hardships, Hornsby Connect is open for you.

Available to all Health Care Card and Pension Card holders

Come and visit a safe community hub that will be open every Wednesday* between 11.30am and 2.00pm to enjoy some company or a much needed tea or coffee. Hornsby Connect hub is a low-cost Food Distribution Centre for those experiencing financial hardship providing bread, milk, groceries, fruit and vegies as well as offering a Café facility with free tea, coffee and cakes to enjoy with company.

2018 Hunger Report

A message from
Gerry Andersen OAM
CEO, Foodbank NSW & ACT

Dear Hornsby Connect Inc,

On Sunday, we released the 2018 Foodbank Hunger Report and as a friend of Foodbank NSW & ACT, I wanted to inform you of the results.

I am disappointed to say that the report does not deliver good news. An alarming 4 million Australians experienced some form of food insecurity in the past 12 months, with 76% of these regularly eating less than they need because they lack the money or resources to obtain food.

The crisis is even worse in regional and remote areas – with people living in the country 33% more likely to go hungry than those living in capital and major cities. More than 1.5 million Australians living in regional and remote areas experienced food insecurity during the past 12 months. This is even before the full effects of the current drought are factored in.
