Congratulations to the City of Greater Bendigo 2021 Citizen of the Year: Bendigo Foodshare's own Cathie Steele!
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.
More than 200 people have put up their hand to volunteer with Bendigo Foodshare after the organisation launched an urgent recruitment drive to cope with increased demand for emergency food relief due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of you will be familiar with our new manager, Bridget Bentley, from her previous role as our Grow Cook Share Project Coordinator and Food Ambassador. However, you may not know much about Bridget's previous work and life outside Bendigo Foodshare.
