Brief History

Food For All began in response to needs in our local community. These needs emerged at Poverty Forums arranged by the former Shire of Flinders in 1991. Our work has been ongoing from that time. It is ecumenically and community based. It is also an entirely voluntary Organisation.

Added to this are fresh fruit and vegetables.

Now in its 26th year of operation Food For All has packed and distributed just on 55,000 weekly food parcels.

Since our inception we have handled just over over $2.8 million worth of goods for our weekly parcels. This has been possible thanks to the support and generosity of Clubs, Organisations and a great number of people in our local community who donate towards our emergency food aid.

Our Committee consists of members from the local Churches, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, community groups and individuals.

Our boundaries are those of the former Shire of Flinders, namely Safety Beach to Portsea and Red Hill and Main Ridge.
