Emergency Food Options in our Shire

Vulnerable Victorians self-isolating due to COVID-19 can get access to emergency relief packages. The program will support people who have little or no food and no network of family and friends to support them. Each eligible household will receive a two-week supply of essential goods. To find out more , call the COVID19 Hotline:   1800 675 398
