Who is Medical Pantry?
Medical Pantry is a registered Health Promotion Charity in Victoria that is 100% volunteer run and lead. Although we have a diverse background ranging from university students to retirees, engineers to health professionals, we all share one common mission - to redistribute surplus medical supplies to heal Mother Earth and the underserved, globally.
We are an Australian leader in providing innovative solutions to problems of healthcare inequality. In partnership with other Australian charities and not-for-profit organisations, as well as community leaders and Government bodies, we envision a day where access to healthcare is available to all via an efficient and sustainable network that acquires and redistributes medical supplies.
What we're looking for
Do you have a passion for reducing medical waste in landfill? Every year tonnes and tonnes of medical goods end up in landfill because it is expired or simply it is excess stock! Our goal at Medical Pantry is to redivert this surplus medical supplies to underserved communities.

Anyone from any profession who has a passion for reducing waste is welcome and we would love your help!
