MVNS is a small not for profit non Government organisation.  This means that many of our projects are unfunded and rely on community support (either through donations or volunteers) for them to be viable.  We have Deductible Gift Recipient status which means your donations can be claimed as a tax deduction. It is an excellent way of showing your support!

Current Fundraising Campaign: Food from the Heart


What will the funds be used for?

The Manning Valley Cooperative Living Program (MVLP) now includes Food from the Heart.

Food from the Heart provides free nutritious meals, including a Monday lunch for community members. This is an essential part of the MVCLP. It is a resource that provides support toward self reliance for vulnerable community members in a setting which offers a free nutritious meal, advocacy, education and opportunities to commune and be involved. It is resourced by volunteers and utilises produce from our Community Gardens.

It includes the Garden Kitchen initiative which also provides opportunities for community members to receive free hands on cooking classes and nutrition programs as a way of learning how to better take care of themselves and their families. It is a part of an ongoing commitment by MVNS to provide an holistic approach to emergency relief service delivery.
