RACV Donation

Our Community Pantry welcomed a new addition to the team - a new Chiller Fridge!
Our existing Chiller Fridge sadly passed away earlier this year. This meant a lot of extra work for our volunteers in packing and unpacking our fresh produce each day and trying to keep it fresh while on display with frozen ice bricks.
In hearing our plight, RACV arranged for us to obtain a new one!
"...RACV is really proud to work with a great an organisation that is making a difference in the community..." says Regional Sales Manager, Donna Moroz.
We are so grateful for organisations like RACV who don't hesitate to help us in our time of need. Thanks RACV 
With the increase in people using our FoodShare Shop, we needed additional freezer space to ensure we have enough frozen product on hand.
Another amazing local organisation, Rotary Club of Albury NSW came to our aid providing us a grant to purchase an additional freezer.
Peter and Charlene from Rotary Club of Albury NSW popped in this morning to visit Sue and Nicole at our FoodShare Shop at 81 Wigg Street, Wodonga to see our new acquisition.
Thanks Rotary Club of Albury NSW. We sincerely appreciate your support and for enabling us to obtain an additional freezer.
