Rattling tins for a good cause

Bendigonians are urged to dig deep to support Foodshare’s Million Meals in March campaign, a whole-community campaign designed to raise awareness of the chronic food poverty and to celebrate Foodshare’s solution to the problem.

Lisa Chesters MP will lead a team of tin rattlers raising money for Foodshare on Labor Day. Ms Chesters offered her tin-rattling services and to help source volunteers for the day.

One in nine people in Central Victoria cannot afford to source food for meals at some time each year. To help our fellow Central Victorians, Bendigo Foodshare sources and distributes over 1,000,000kg of food to Central & Northern Victorians annually.

Bendigo Foodshare can deliver food for 16 meals for every dollar donated.
