Its Business as Usual at Hornsby Connect during the current lockdown. Just remember that masks are mandatory and you need to practice social distancing for all our sakes.  Please be respectful to our wonderful team of Volunteers who continue to provide this service during these difficult times.

We are now offering a “Staples” hamper, with a varied selection of pantry items, bakery items, fruit and vegetables for $10. This is a required purchase for all clients visiting the centre, and each hamper will contain the same items.

We understand that you may not want all items in the Staples hamper, but please take everything with you and pass along items you won’t use to someone else who will.

In addition, you may wish to buy our “Meat/Protein” hamper or “Personal Hygiene” hamper.

You will be able to view these prior to purchase, and also make some changes to the contents to better suit your needs. The prices for these will be clearly displayed each week, and will depend on the produce we have available.

We also know that many people have special dietary requirements. Our supplies are limited at the moment, however if you make your needs known to us, we will do our best to find suitable produce for you.

“A hand up for people in need!”

Providing affordable food for those who need it most

at Hornsby Youth & Family Community Centre,
corner Muriel & Burdett Streets, Hornsby
(entry via Burdett Street gate) 

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.


Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury’s counselling and telephone support services are running as usual with a few modifications for everyone’s health and safety.

Last year we distributed over 100,000 kgs of food, to more than 5,000 recipients, and served over 6,000 hot meals to clients at our centre. We are so grateful for the dedication and commitment given by our wonderful volunteers who help make this all happen each week

You will require a current Working With Children (WWC) number to be eligible to work as one of our volunteers. This is a requirement of Hornsby Connect and Hornsby Shire Council, the managers of the Youth and Community Centre where we operate.For more information on Working With Children numbers visit the Office of the Children’s Guardian website.

Donations of non-perishable food and money is also appreciated to help us continue this much-needed service. Click on the “Donate” button above for more details.
