Some of the tinned food raised for the Mullumbimby Neigbourhood Centre at the last Warm Up laneway party food-drive.

The Warm Up laneway party food-drive in Mullumbimby is a great way of helping the local Neighbourhood Centre, while having a great time dancing with local music maestros such as DJs Leoch, Rahima, Dr Who, Milk and El Toro.

‘I saw that the local Neighbourhood Centre had a lot of fresh food through their Food Recovery program, but what they were lacking was canned and long-life food’, said event organizer Abel el toro. ‘The laneway party is entry by a donation of canned food, which is collected and given to the Centre. The event has been really successful at generating canned food items, and it’s now going to be on the last Saturday of every month from 5-11pm, except in December when it’s going to be a week earlier (Saturday 21 December).’
