Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Over the 2013-14 year the Outer East Foodshare Board has explored various options to add value in the food rescue and redistribution sector. The Board felt it was worth doing this, rather than winding up, when Foodbank Victoria informed the Board in October 2013 that it was no longer able to fund regional/community foodshare hubs.The option that looks most viable helps the smaller food relief agencies by coordinating their orders into a single pick up from Foodbank at Yarraville. It is hoped that a pilot utilising a truck, personnel and the storage facilities from two of the larger local agencies, will commence soon. This should save time and money for the smaller, outer east agencies that find it difficult to go Yarraville for goods each week, and is a great example of local agencies working together. Each smaller agency will pay a small cost for the service with the larger agencies are donating their resources to support the pilot.The pilot will commence in December 2014. If the pilot is successful the Outer East Foodshare Board may look to local food businesses that may be able to provide additional fresh food for local agency use.Whilst this pilot is its main focus, the Board believes there is further potential for collaboration to improve food security in the outer east of Melbourne and will continue to work towards this goal.
