Tasty treats were on the menu for those doing it tough around Brimbank last week.

Online food delivery service, iPantry gave away up to 3000 muffins last week as part of a food relief initiative.

It comes as Melbourne has experienced a rapid rise in demand for food-related support due to the coronavirus pandemic.

iPantry co-founder Rimon Barbar was at the company’s Sunshine headquarters to collect the sweet treats.

“We know this is a drop in the ocean when looking at what is needed to meet Melbourne’s demand for food-related support, however by offering a sweet treat as a special addition to existing food relief packs, we hope to make a small difference to Melburnians doing it tough during lockdown,“ he said.

“Whether it’s a muffin after dinner at one of Melbourne’s many soup vans or community kitchens, or a surprise found in delivered food hampers, we are welcoming any food-related charity in Melbourne to take as many as needed.”

With flavours ranging from triple choc mud, to strawberry and peach, and sticky date pudding, it is hoped that the muffins added a little ray of sunshine during tough times.
