Bendigo Bank Million Meals in May sponsors

Business community rallies to help feed the hungry

It’s easy to see why Greater Bendigo has such a strong reputation as a caring and industrious community.

With Bendigo Bank Million Meals in May, Bendigo Foodshare has been encouraged by numerous offers of corporate partnerships, sponsorship and in-kind support from businesses across the region.

In fact, Bendigo Bank Million Meals in May has generated $20,500 from business sponsorships so far, contributing significantly to the $65,000 target Bendigo Foodshare set each year to fund vital food collection and re-distribution operations for people experiencing food poverty.

On top of the generous financial support,

Bendigo Bank joins the fight against food poverty

We’re excited to announce that Bendigo Bank, Australia’s fifth largest retail bank, has signed on as the major partner for our annual fundraiser Bendigo Bank Million Meals in May for 2019.

Bendigo Bank recognises the power of community contribution and has a long history of investing in the prosperity of the Bendigo community – a 160-year history, in fact.

To support the appeal, Bendigo Bank has volunteered its branch network to act as collection points for community donations and will hold a series of fundraising events for staff and customers in May.

Movie Fundraiser: Leave No Trace

Bendigo Foodshare has selected LEAVE NO TRACE as our movie fundraiser this year. Join us for thispowerful movie, where a father and daughter live a perfect but mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon, rarely making contact with the outside world. But when a small mistake tips them off to authorities, they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own.

The event will be held Thursday 25th of October 2018. Doors open at 6pmfor a light supper before the movie at 7pm.

Car event raises food and funds for Bendigo Foodshare

A ‘SHOW Off Your Pride and Joy’ car event has helped raise about 300 kilograms of food for Bendigo Foodshare.

The October 10 event drew a diverse mix of classic car and motorycle owners and others just keen to support a worthy cause.

Daryl Lynch, who co-ordinated the event with fellow Bendigo TAFE diploma of community services student Maddie McCartin, said they were happy with the response.

The pair were moved to organise the fundraiser after learning Bendigo Foodshare was experiencing a shortage of supplies.

Each year, Foodshare volunteers help distribute much needed food to more than 80 groups across central Victoria,

Forklift Donation from Topend Training

A country Victoria-based business has extended Bendigo charity group Foodshare a lifeline with the donation of a forklift.

Ouyen-based training organisation Top End Training gifted the machine to the organisation which distributes food directly to local relief agencies.

Foodshare administration and food rescue manager Fay Barrett said the organisation’s old forklift was ready for retirement. “If it was an animal, it would have been euthanased a long time ago,” she said.

She was moved to tears by the generosity of Top End Training director Bill Morrish, the man she calls “Santa Claus”.
