Each year the Give Where You Live Foundation’s Feed Geelong Appeal raises funds to support food relief across the wider Geelong region. This support helps to fund grants to support food relief through the Foundation’s Survive & Thrive grant round.
Across the wider Geelong region there are more than 60 organisations running programs that provide food relief 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 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.
