FareShare’s First Nations officer Jason Mollenhauer said he was happy that FareShare was able to answer the call for help.
“It is the most remote community that FareShare has been able to get support to,” said Jason.
“These meals will have an impact on the community and early feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”
The special delivery followed a request for crisis support from Mayor Kyle Yanner (pictured second from left) who has been helping to deliver the meals to some of the 1,200 residents on the island.
“The Mornington Island Council would like to thank FareShare for providing meals for the Christmas period,” said Mayor Yanner.
Next year FareShare is extending its Meals for the Mob program to the island.
