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.
