Food drives are a great way to get teams and communities together whilst helping us get more food, grocery and personal items to the people who need them.

Host a food drive

Bendigo Foodshare relies on donations large and small. If you’re keen to join us to fight food poverty in Central Victoria, you can donate food as an individual or family, or organise a food drive collection in your school, workplace, community or sporting club.

We hold our community-wide annual food drives twice a year in June and November. You are welcome to organise a food drive to coincide with these annual campaigns, but you are also welcome to hold your own food drive at any time of year.

Some of our most in demand items include:

  • Canned fruit, vegetables, seafood, soups and meals
  • Breakfast cereal
  • Pasta, noodles and rice
  • Long life milk and juice
  • Coffee, tea and spreads
  • Muesli bars, dried fruit and nuts
  • Sauces, seasoning, cooking supplies like flour, oil and sugar

You can drop off donations to Bendigo Foodshare between 9am-2pm Monday – Friday at 2/43 Havilah Road, Long Gully 3550
