Organisations will come together at the Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell tomorrow to provide interactive information stalls educating the community on the effects of poverty as part of anti-poverty week.

Anglicare Green Shoots senior program coordinator Bonnie Hook said the event was about advocating for people in poverty.

“We are trying to de-stigmatise what poverty is and shine a light on the fact that it can affect absolutely anyone at any time,” she said.

Community members are encouraged to join for a free lunch, with the Bunbury Soup Van to provide 30 litres of soup.

The event will run from 11am to 1pm.
