Become a Gold Plate Sponsor

Bendigo Foodshare operates with limited one off Government grants, and relies on the support of our business community, philanthropy and community fundraising to meet essential operating costs. 

We are eternally grateful for the generosity of local businesses who continue to support our work in the community and in 2024 we are excited to offer this new opportunity for the business community to help our charity continue to achieve incredible impacts. 

We are looking to partner with 12 businesses in 2024 (one per month) as prestigious Gold Plate Sponsors when a $5,000+ sponsorship is made.

We have had increasing interest from the business community to partner with Bendigo Foodshare and a number of businesses who are already supporting us in a number of ways including through volunteering and sponsored signage on our food rescue vans. This new sponsorship package aims to reward and recognise these amazing businesses for their support. 

Gold Plate Sponsors ($5,000 paid sponsorship) are rewarded with the following opportunities:

  • A prominent logo on our ‘Benny’ van for the 2024 calendar year 
  • A visit from our van ‘Benny’ to your business or location of choice, where we can take a photo of your team for your/our use and promotion
  • A featured sponsor post on social media (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn) and our blog as ‘sponsor of the month’
  • 1 x Cooking for Change – Corporates session for your staff where they will work with our cook in a commercial kitchen and make 150 food relief meals
  • A second Cooking for Change session that your team get to participate in or you can pay it forward to another community group or volunteers
  • Your business logo included on our website feature page as a prestigious gold plate supporter
  • Provision of a lock-up Bendigo Foodshare sponsor logo for you to use, for example on your website
