Food rescue and share.jpg

At Dromana Community House we have invested over six years providing food for the community in need. Over seventy families weekly are collecting now on Thursdays.

 The Pop up cart is well visited by the community six days per week

The Bendigo Bank Community Branch Southern Peninsula are on board with other sponsors so we can start to roll out more "emerging community needs".

"It does take a community like ours to feed and raise a village!"

We are addressing food scarcity and poverty, empowering people through volunteering, education, social inclusion and connection.

We will be rolling out practical ways to eat healthier and stretch that food further!
