Drysdale Family Support received a $30,000 grant to support their foodbank program, assisting 380 people living on the Bellarine who are in desperate need of food in order to feed themselves and their families. Families just like the Smiths.
The foodbank provides nutritious food not just to meet people’s basic needs, but to build their food resources and bring stability into people’s lives. This includes families like the Smiths.
The Smiths are grandparents caring for their grandchildren, which has placed pressure on the family budget resulting in them being unable to provide a healthy meal for the family every night.
The foodbank has been able to provide food to support the family, helping to ease the pressure both financially and emotionally.
