Gunnedah Good Noshery will now have its own pantry and even more volunteers to help out on Friday evenings, thanks to Jobs Australia.
The soup kitchen's founder Kate Perceval said the extra volunteers was great and just what she needed.
"The new volunteers have proven themselves to be pretty useful, which is good," Ms Perceval said.
Jobs Australia Gunnedah branch's job active consultant Cassie Foody said her volunteering clients would be "giving back to the community".
"[The noshery] looks at how other people are struggling. Some people think they're hard up but there's always someone worse out there," Ms Foody said.
Fellow job active consultant Vicki Durham said Kate and her team of helpers were "doing an amazing job".
"We have a number of clients who are homeless, coach-surfing or living in cars and a few of them are accessing the noshery for maybe their only decent meal in a week," Ms Durham said.
Ms Perceval said she was also very grateful for the donated pantry, and said it was "fabulous" to have.
"If I have excess stock I can put it in there and can easily look at what I need to stock up on or what I might need for a certain recipe rather than pull things out of boxes," she said.
"I can keep it there and I don't need to cart it to-and-from my home all the time."
