Holy Cross Tuckerbox is a volunteer run food outlet designed to assist people with budget constraints.

 Food and grocery items are mostly provided by Foodbank NSW/ACT and OzHarvest. A wide variety of people are part of our community — pensioners, people living with disabilities, and working families on tight budgets are members of Tuckerbox.

The annexe, church and the breezeway are transformed into a small grocery and afternoon tea centre on Saturdays from 2 pm to 4 pm. Groceries, bread, fresh fruit and vegetables are available for a nominal handling fee.
