Albury Wodonga Regional FoodShare works collaboratively to maximise the volume and nutritional quality of food for local people in need.
We rescue food on a mass scale by operating a first-class warehouse in Wodonga that receives, sorts, stores and distributes rescued food with the help of a growing team of volunteers.
We share food and meals with welfare agencies, schools and community centres in the Albury Wodonga region to give to people that would otherwise go hungry.
We empower people to make their own way out of poverty through education, training and employment programs and we ensure sufficient, affordable and culturally appropriate nutritious food is available to all.
We increase public awareness of food security and enable people to get involved through volunteering, partnerships and donations.
Community Pantry Program
FoodShare introduced a Community Pantry program in response to the evolving impacts of COVID-19 to support people in the community experiencing financial hardship.
This program commenced with food hampers and has expanded to include the FoodShare Shop, with the added flexibility of individually selecting grocery items from a wide choice of healthy fresh food and pantry staples.
The Community Pantry program is accessible by purchasing a FoodShare voucher.
