Bendigo Foodshare provides an essential service for our community, and we will continue to operate during the regional Victorian stage three restrictions.
A new study from Bendigo Foodshare, the City of Greater Bendigo, and the Bendigo Student Association – YouFood Insights – is looking at the financial impact of COVID-19 and the ability to afford food and groceries on young Central Victorians.
Cafes for COVID is an innovative new program that will pay local businesses, using money raised by the community, to cook meals that will go out to people struggling to afford food via Bendigo Foodshare’s network of food relief agencies.
Bendigo Foodshare’s Bendigo Bank Million Meals in May appeal has reached its end, but that hasn’t stopped local donors, with contributions to the appeal still rolling in ahead of the end of the financial year. Counting is still in progress, but a $5,000 donation from the Bendigo City Masonic Lodge has brought the working total to $56,500, just $9,000 from the appeal’s target.
