Construction for Bendigo Foodshare’s new Food Hub at the corner of Breen Street and Belle Vue Road, Golden Square, has commenced.
When completed in October 2024, the new $3.8 million facility will almost triple the storage capacity of Bendigo Foodshare’s current warehouse.
To celebrate the start of construction, an official sod turning event was held on 12 December 2023 with the Premier Jacinta Allan, Maree Edwards MP and City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Andrea Metcalf.
Our new home has been made possible thanks to the generous financial support of our community; individuals, businesses, philanthropists, and state and local Government contributing funds, some small and some large, all make a difference.
We envision, over time, the space becoming a space where the community can continue to access and connect but also immerse themselves in the joys of growing, sharing, and appreciating local food. Our immediate focus is to build a new fit for purpose warehouse to support our food relief efforts.
