The Sapphire Community Pantry is surrounded by support.
The not-for-profit enterprise opened in 2017 and since then has been providing affordable and accessible food to everyone - a purpose embraced by many in the community.
Volunteers with the pantry Sharon Smith and Sarah Young wanted to thank all the people and organisations who had been supporting them in their work.
For instance, local farmers provide fresh produce to sell at their store at 2 Peden St, Bega and individual members of the community have often come in to donate baskets of fruit and vegetables.
Also, Betta Home Living and MGM Panelbeaters in Bega have donated a $1000 freezer, On The Perch from Kalaru donated a $500 freezer and Butchers Block and Bega Valley Meats donate mince and sausages.
Other food donations come from Coles and Woolworths through OzHarvest and SecondBite.
"It just shows people are getting behind us in the community," Ms Smith said.
"It means a lot to us and we really want to thank everyone."
She thought individuals and businesses donated to the shop because they could see there were people in need in the Bega Valley, although it was open to everyone.
"The best thing is everything is cheap," Sarah said.
