After many years of planning, lobbying for support, writing funding submissions and fundraising, Shepparton Foodshare has now secured sufficient funds to build a new warehouse.
The new purpose-built warehouse will provide accommodation security for our food relief services that includes food rescue and receival of donations, warehousing, and distribution of food to people in need across the Goulburn Valley and beyond.
The new warehouse project is a collaborative approach having received a $2,918,970 commitment from the Victorian Government and $600,000 from the Federal Government.
A contribution toward fit out was also made by the Margaret Attwood Trust and the Freemasons Foundation of Victoria.
The site on which the warehouse will be built was donated by local philanthropists the Andreadis family.
It is anticipated the project will be completed at the end of 2024.
