In a gift from one sustainable operation to another – local energy provider Enova Energy has donated $3,750 to local food-rescue organisation Liberation Larder.

Enova Energy CEO Felicity Stening presented the charity with the funds yesterday (Thursday) thanks to the generosity of new Enova customers each of whom chose to donate $50.

‘We are utterly thrilled to be giving this money to such an important local institution in the Northern Rivers thanks to the generosity of our customers,’ Ms Stening said.

‘Our customers are willing to put themselves aside to support other local people in need. At the same time, they’ve chosen an energy provider that is actively making a difference to the local economy and to achieving a renewable energy future.’

Liberation Larder receives leftover food from local supermarkets and other outlets and provides it to the community in the form of free breakfasts and lunches during the week.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
