Tuckshop help

The tuckshop team aim to provide convenient, healthy and affordable food options for families five days a week. Over the past twelve months we have experienced substantial price increases from our food and packaging suppliers, in addition to fuel surcharges on all deliveries.

The team has also struggled with a shortage of volunteers, meaning that the number of paid hours has increased just to keep the tuckshop operational.

Considering the above, we have made the difficult decision to raise the price of all items from Term 2. We welcome any feedback you may have and if you have any time to volunteer, we would love to hear from you at Thanks for your support.
