Federal Minister for Housing Tanya Plibersek and City of Sydney councillor Phillip Black presided over the official ceremony to commemorate 25 years of the Food Distribution Network at the weekend.
On Saturday FDN marked a quarter of a century of providing fruit and vegetables to people living with HIV, the disabled and the elderly.
“FDN has been providing fresh food service to clients within the GLBT community since its beginning in the mid-’80s,” a spokesman for the anniversary event said.
“FDN assists clients to live independently at home and service delivery promotes autonomy, and is sensitive to the diversity in our community.”
Volunteers, clients and FDN staff were invited to mark the occasion by attending a special screening of the documentary, Food for people, not for profit: A day in the life of FDN, before the charity launched its official anniversary calendar.
