Foodbank to launch “Map of Victoria’s hunger” can drive
Foodbank Victoria is to launch an innovative food donation activity in conjunction with the upcoming Melbourne Food and Wine Festival at the beginning of March. The activity encourages donations of food cans by members of the public to Foodbank for the hungry and impoverished in Victoria.
How and where the activity takes place
An outlined map of Victoria will be painted on the grass from the parkland between King Street and Clarendon Street, over the river from the Crown Casino. The map will show the level of hunger in each local government area.
Everyone is invited to a walk on the map and will read about the issues that face the needy in Victoria.
Families are being invited to bring cans from home to donate and place on this “Map of Victoria’s hunger” where they decide food cans are most needed.
When the activity is happening
The activity takes place on the opening weekend of Melbourne’s Food and Wine Festival. This will take place on the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River, March 3-4 2012.
Australian Food News is very supportive if this project and will be publishing photos of the event online.
Foodbank Victoria’s CEO Ric Benjamin says he is hoping the public will get behind this activity in a big way. Australian Food News urges its readers to pass on this information to family, friends and work colleagues.
