At 2pm, Wednesday, June the 23rd at St Mary’s Hall
High Street Kangaroo Flat.
Speaker: Margaret Keech OA
Margaret is a board member of Bendigo Foodshare, they recently organised a very successful fund raising endeavour to build a larger warehouse to accommodate the growing demand of their food relief.
There has been a 40% increase for food relief since the pandemic began and so the necessity for larger premises. Very generous donations from all over Bendigo made the idea of a new warehouse possible.
Bendigo Foodshare works with businesses, philanthropic donors, food manufacturers and retailers, charity partners and volunteers to address food poverty and waste in Central Victoria. Their supporters contribute more than money. Their advocacy, volunteerism and in-kind support helps them collect more surplus food which enables them to expand their services.
