OUR FOODBANK

Thank you to all our contributors:

 

Happy Valley Seeds is keen to collaborate and commit to supporting the Paynesville Neighbourhood Centre’s Foodbank. We realise the importance of local food security and how community gardening can contribute to self-sufficiency and the sustainability aspect of growing local produce, thereby reducing the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation.

Donating seeds for the foodbank program is our pleasure.

 

Paynesville’s Foodbank is supported by Bendigo Bank as part of their Community Partnership Sponsorship program.

 

Thank you to the Paynesville Uniting Church for providing a space for us to run Foodbank and other food security programs.

Paynesville IGA has been helping us greatly by collecting donations in store.

 

A very big thank you for making all this possible goes out to all our volunteers, staff, to everyone who makes donations and to the local community for supporting us.
