Community Choice - Feed Geelong

An initiative of the Give Where You Live Foundation, Community Choice brings together food relief and local hospitality venues to address food insecurity and bring the dignity of choice to people across our region.

At the beginning of the pandemic, the Give Where You Live Foundation designed the concept in collaboration with the Donkey Wheel Foundation to help support the local hospitality industry in their pandemic recovery while also strengthening the existing food relief network in our region.

As a result, our food relief network will become more accessible and give people accessing food relief real choice about what type of food they’d like to access. Choices like whether they want to use their voucher for groceries, or to support a local restaurant, or take their children out for a birthday treat.

A BOOST OF

$66,000 TO THE LOCAL HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY

BETWEEN JANUARY 2022 AND JUNE 2022

Community Choice forms part of the Give Where You Live Foundation’s Feed Geelong initiative which works to address food insecurity throughout the G21 region and is a reimagining of the Foundation’s existing voucher program, which was established in response to the collapse of Pyramid Building Society in 1990.

The Community Choice initiative would not be possible without the support and generosity of OK200 and The Community Grocer.
