Welcome to the Hope Centre 

The Hope Centre is a food rescue and training not for profit organisation based in Warrawong NSW. We are one of the largest distributors of food rescue in the Illawarra as well as having distribution partners based in the Shoalhaven area. The Food Barn is the largest program run by the Hope Centre and has been ongoing for the past 9 years providing affordable and healthy food to our regions most marginalised people as well as those going through a though period. The Centre also runs regular training courses for the unemployed and focuses on getting them job ready as well as providing work placements. All training is done in the brand new training suite opened this year by the Hon. Scott Morrison MP.
