Across the Geelong/G21 region there are more than 50 organisations running at least 99 programs that provide emergency food assistance to men, women and children in need.
These are just the organisations we know of – we believe there are more. Many of these organisations are run by volunteers. Many of these organisations are run on a small budgets. While more and more businesses are offering their surplus quality food, many of these organisations simply do not have the means to collect, store, cook, serve or distribute this food to the people they support.
Each year the Feed Geelong appeal seeks to provide these Geelong/G21 organisations with resources to help them. 2017 Feed Geelong grants will open 28 August. For further information regarding the 2017 Feed Geelong grants, please contact Cynthia Scherer, Community Impact and Grants Manager, Give Where You Live Foundation via email or at 5229 4364.
