I have spoken about the team at Lomandra Community Pantry many times in this place.
They are a dedicated crew of likeminded individuals who make an enormous difference to the lives of so many throughout Campbelltown and the wider Macarthur region.
That is why it was extremely fitting that the Lomandra Community Pantry was officially recognised at this year's Campbelltown Australia Day awards.
The team were awarded with Community Group Initiative of the Year – an accolade I am sure no one in the Campbelltown community would begrudge.
Personally, I was ecstatic that the team had received such a prestigious recognition.
The past two years have been trying times for everyone throughout our state.
Those in Campbelltown certainly haven't been exempt.
But it is people like those at the Lomandra Community Pantry who have really stepped up to help those in need.
There are thousands of thankful locals in Campbelltown who are fortunate for the efforts of those at Lomandra Community Pantry.
On behalf of the community of Campbelltown I would again like to say a huge congratulations to the entire team at the pantry on an accolade that is certainly well deserved.
