Colin previously worked in the areas of Supermarket and Management fields and this has prepared him well in his role as Corporate Manager of the Geelong Food Relief Bank a position the he has held for approx. 1 year.
The GFRB feed approx. 35,000 people per year in Geelong and surrounding areas. 650 tonnes of food was supplied over the last 12 months, from the two sites situated at Freedman Street North Geelong and the Little Smythe Street location in the old Katos building near Deakin University on the waterfront.
The GFRB is a non-profit organisation which receives support from ALDI, Routleys, McCain’s in Ballarat and Polar in Colac.
It does not receive any Government funding at stage but is working on it.
How can we as a Rotary Club assist??? Pass the message on about the Foodbank to other Rotary Clubs and organisations.
