Community Food Relief Fund To Support The Vulnerable

The Victorian Government is strengthening food relief services across the state ensuring healthy food reaches Victorians in need.

The $5 million Community Food Relief Fund is part of the recently announced $11.3 million investment to boost food relief activities for vulnerable Victorians. The Fund supports local community organisations supplying food to Victorians made vulnerable by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

One-off grants of up to $75,000 are available to assist community food relief organisations with a range of challenges due to increased demand, increasing our state’s capacity to source and distribute food relief.

The grants are open to all Victorian community food relief organisations, including those in partnership with local councils.

The package builds on $7.4 million already announced earlier this year to expand food relief operations and deliver more free and nutritious meals, which is creating 119 new food relief jobs.
