Moira Food Share

Food Hampers & Assistance

Moira FoodShare is an MHA Care community-based initiative with the purpose of using rescued and donated food items to distribute to those in our community that need a hand up.

In 2022, Moira Foodshare distributed over 200,000kgs of food, worth an estimated value of at least $3.5 Million dollars, that was otherwise destined to end up in landfill.

Covering a land area that encompasses the Moira, Berrigan and Federation Shires, Moira FoodShare has become an integral service that is vital in building community resilience and strength.

We currently have over 50 active volunteers who help service Cobram, Barooga, Yarrawonga, Mulwala, Bundalong, Tungamah, Nathalia, Numurkah, Katamatite, Waaia, Picola, Barmah, Strathmerton, Tocumwal, Finley, and Berrigan.

Volunteers Packing Food For Donation

What to Expect

We support farmers, single parent families, people who are out of work or individuals and families just finding the going tough from time to time, within the community and surrounding rural areas.

Our volunteers will discreetly provide you and your family members with a substantial food parcel (approximately 1 week of food). This will be made up from whatever food commodities are available at the time. Stock may vary from time to time.
