THE STAPLES BAG

We are a small team committed to empowering our
community’s low income earners by providing easy access to
low cost and high quality nutritious food staples.

Everyone should be able to afford basic food staples.
However this is not easy for many in our community who are struggling with rising costs of living and on low incomes.

That is why we are committed to supplying food staples at
very low cost to lessen the financial  
burden of those in Sydney who need it most.
