Help Bendigo Foodshare support local families this Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving and we firmly believe in supporting the fantastic groups in our community leading the charge in giving to those who need it most.

We’ll again be collecting non-perishable food items for Bendigo Foodshare and we invite you to also get involved. We have a collection basket at our office reception (located at 59 Queen Street). Please drop off your donation by no later than Thursday 13 December 2018.

What is needed?

With over four million Australians experiencing food insecurity in the past twelve months it’s important that we continue to donate especially those foods in high demand.

Food items that are regularly encouraged for donation include; rice, pasta and cereals however any other non-perishable items will be well received.

Financial donations are also greatly appreciated

For every dollar donated to Bendigo Foodshare, the team can provide food for 16 meals. If you can, we’d encourage you also to make a donation – maybe it could be in the name of your office Secret Santa (sure beats a novelty pen or a box of milk chocolate golf balls) or gift them the 2018 Million Meals Campaign Fundraising Cookbook for just $20.
