Description of charity's activities and outcomes
This last year we continued to collect frozen and chilled foods from Foodbank Victoria for seven agencies in the outer east, with over 6,000 kg of food collected. A solid proportion of the food distributed was protein and/or calcium rich food. An independent survey of the local food relief agencies confirmed the value of our service. It appears that the main limitation to expanding our service is the lack of storage facilities at the local agencies. This presents an opportunity for OEF to explore.A Best Practice Workshop was held in June 2016 for agencies in the Yarra Ranges area, with a keynote speaker from The 4Cs, a successful food relief organisation. The speaker shared his ideas and experience giving us ideas we can develop locally. We hope to continue running workshops to allow agencies to discuss their issues and ideas, and to inspire innovation.We thank Yarra Ranges Council for their continuing financial support as it has enabled OEF to continue the deliveries and explore ways to value-add to the emergency food relief sector in the outer east.
