Stawell Food Connect Program
Stawell Regional Health partnered with other local organisations to establish a Food Distribution program in Stawell. Through Second Bite food that is unable to be sold at Stawell Woolworths but fit for human consumption is collected daily by volunteers and taken to the Stawell Neighbourhood House. Staff and volunteers sort through the food and coordinate collection from a number of groups and organisations in the community to use for their food programs. Food is being used for school breakfast programs, community lunches and fresh produce for emergency relief.
