Fresh St Market IGA is proud to be an active member of the Tablelands community. We’re locally owned and family operated. We employ a great team of local residents in store. Wherever possible, we purchase fresh produce and products, from local farmers and suppliers. More than that, we engage with our customers and support a range of local community and sporting groups, not-for-profit organisations and charities.
We do this through donations, sponsorships and in-kind support, as well as our Community Chest. In the past financial year this support accounted for over $20,000 in value. If you’re a community organisation seeking support, feel free to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org If you want to support a store that supports its local community, then choose us.
Community Chest is an IGA initiative, raising funds for contribution to the local community. In 2018/2019 this equated to nearly $5,000.
Last year we provided over $12,000 in sponsorships, to a range of local community and sporting organisations, and various clubs and societies.
We also make regular donations to assorted charities. Last year we contributed over $3,000 in total. Fresh St Market IGA is proud to support our community.
