MEMBER for The Entrance, David Mehan commended Miss Browne on the honour, recognising her passion and the positive impact she has made in The Entrance community.


“Miranda Browne's dedication to her community through the creation of The Entrance Food Hub is truly commendable,” Mr Mehan said.


“Her social enterprise not only addresses the immediate needs of local residents by providing low-cost or free food but also fosters a sense of social connection and support.


“It's evident that her efforts are not solely focused on meeting basic needs but also on creating an inclusive and supportive environment.”


NSW Minister for Women Jodie Harrison congratulated all of the state’s Local Woman of the Year Award 2024 recipients.


“Women who contribute to local areas are the pillars of their communities. They selflessly dedicate their time and energy to make a positive difference,” Minister Harrison said.


“I would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions these women are making in their communities with dedication and passion, and thank them for all their amazing work.”


The Local Woman of the Year Awards is an annual program celebrating outstanding women in local communities. This is a separate program which runs alongside the prestigious Women of the Year Awards program.


The Local Women of the Year Awards is part of the NSW Government’s initiative to recognise the accomplishments of women as part of NSW Women’s Week 2024, running 4-10 March, coinciding with International Women’s Day on 8 March.


Recipients of the Local Woman of the Year Awards will be hosted at the NSW Women of the Year Awards Ceremony at the International Convention Centre in Sydney on 7 March 2024.
