Constituency Question – Warrnambool and District Food Share

My question is to the Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, and I seek the latest information on the work to improve regional distribution of food relief services across the whole state. I understand that $3.5 million has been committed to deliver the improvements that our regional distribution hubs will bring and that are a part of this plan.

Last week I met with Warrnambool and District Foodshare executive officer Dedy Friebe to receive a briefing on the important work he and the group that he has with him do making sure that vulnerable people in our community have food on the table. I am a strong supporter of Warrnambool and District Foodshare—my team and I are regular volunteers at the warehouse and my office supports the group in any way we possibly can. I would strongly endorse them to become the hub for western Victoria and for the western part of the state.

They have the networks, they have the ability and they have the community support and the links to regional support services. They have the drive to fill that vital and important role in ensuring people in the south-west who need a bit of support get that.
