While food assistance is an issue in our community all year round it is a bigger issue at Christmas as many welfare and community organisations that provide food assistance close over the Christmas/ Summer holiday. This means that hundreds of families may go without food over Christmas.

This Christmas, Feed Geelong wants to support these families. Until Thursday, 7 December we  are collecting items for Christmas food baskets and hampers for two local organisations: Uniting Barwon and Geelong Basket Brigade.

These items can be dropped off at the Give Where You Live Foundation at 18 Myers Street, Geelong.
