The year 2016-17 can be summarised as maintaining the status quo. Our key indicators remained largely the same as the previous year, however we are in a stronger financial position as a result. In addition, we have secured two grants to help us expand our service offering.The stability of the membership of the board is a strength and will place OEF in an excellent position to deliver its goals for 2017/18.Key indicatorsThe following figures demonstrate our performance for 2016/17:6245kg of food distributed (6219 in 2015/16)24,980 Meals provided(24,876 in 2015/16)Value of meals provided $249,800 ($248,760 in 2015/16)11% of the total weight of food distributed was protein.HighlightsApplying for and being successful in receiving a $1,900 grant towards the Social Enterprise.Continuing with operations given the challenges that change in relocation from The Chapel to Discovery Community Centre.The highly successful The Beyond Relief: Food with Benefits workshop, which was held in June 2017 attended by 15 people from a variety of organisations.Challenges and OpportunitiesOEFs main challenge is to maintain and expand operations and to identify opportunities to provide value added services to our clients.There are further challenges to reduce the reliance on grants and to generate enough income to fund operational costs. This income can in turn be used to fund resources to implement the value added services.The recruitment of an additional board member can provide an opportunity to increase our skills base to assist with these challenges.
