From Monday 9th May until Monday 23rd May, we will be hosting the Essendon Volkswagen Food Drive in support of Foodbank Victoria.

In Victoria, Foodbank rescues and distributes millions of kilograms of food each year - helping to feed more than 130,000 Victorians each month via 450 charity partners across the state. 

With 1 in 5 Australians struggling to put food on the table, demand for food relief far outweighs supply. We are hoping to collect donations of much-needed pantry and personal hygiene items, which will be packed into emergency hampers to assist struggling Victorian families.
