Community Food Guide Supporting people in the City of Melbourne to access, grow and use healthy food
3 Introduction Many people within the City of Melbourne face daily challenges in accessing enough nutritious food for a healthy life. Most of us are not eating enough fruit and vegetables to meet our nutritional needs and an increasing number of people are living in densely populated areas where there is less space to grow food. This guide has been created to provide helpful information about food access programs, services and resources within the City of Melbourne and surrounding suburbs across the following categories: 1. Food banks, parcels and vouchers 2. Community meals, including free and cheap meals 3. Food education, including classes and community kitchens 4. Community gardens 5. Fresh food and groceries, including markets, co-ops, food delivery and shopping support 6. Food rescue The guide has been divided into these six sections to help you easily find the information you need, and there’s also a map on page six so you can see at a glance what’s available near you. You can also access this guide via the City of Melbourne website at melbourne.vic.gov.au/communityfoodguide
Updates to the guide If you’d like to suggest an inclusion or update to a program or service listed in this guide, visit melbourne.vic.gov.au/ communityfoodguide and use the online form. We will update the guide as often as we are able to with the information you provide. Disclaimer The information contained in the Community Food Guide was correct at the time of publication (August 2017) but bear in mind some information will have changed at the time of reading and it’s important that you confirm the information in this guide with the agencies directly. Programs and services listed in this guide are not endorsed or affiliated by the City of Melbourne (with the exception of council-run or contracted services) and are subject to change at any time. 4

Food banks, parcels and vouchers Do you know someone who would benefit from access to affordable or even free groceries? These programs provide food parcels or groceries and food vouchers or gift cards, such as for a local supermarket, to people in need*. Most of the services listed also offer information, support and financial or material aid to meet an immediate need. *There may be restrictions or exclusions, such as cigarettes or alcohol.
