We want to reassure you that Bendigo Foodshare provides an essential service for our community, and we will continue to operate during the regional Victorian stage three restrictions.

We know this is a difficult time. Please take care, respond calmly and comply with the containment measures – we can get through this together.

The safety of our staff, volunteers and partners is our highest priority. In line with best practice, we have implemented a stringent pandemic plan, including regular cleaning, social distancing, shift bubbles and masks.

If you wish to help people struggling with food insecurity, please register to volunteer or donate online.

We are continuing to monitor the situation closely, and we will keep you updated if the situation changes. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.

If you are struggling and need help, please call the COVID hotline on 5434 6237, seven days a week from 8.30am – 5pm or email covid19relief@bendigo.vic.gov.au.

Staying apart keeps us together. Wishing you good health.
