When Foodshare’s Fay Barrett put the call out last month for assistance with collections of donated products for Foodshare, the response was immense. Last week that assistance materialised with Hazeldene’s delivering their first semi-trailer load of donated products to Foodshare’s headquarters in Bendigo. The 14 pallets of necessities including nappies, baby bottles, talcum powder, change mats, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste will make it to those who need it in our local community.
“The difference that this will make to Central Victoria will be incredible” says Fay Barrett, elated to be able to bring this plan to fruition. “For a struggling young mother trying to educate herself and pay for these items, it can all just become too overwhelming”.
Hazeldene’s Marketing Manager Tony Hill was happy to help. “As soon as we realised there was a need for assistance, we offered our transport vehicles to help out. It’s great to see that those products can get to families that really need them. ”
Hazeldene’s has also donated 22,000kg of chicken products to Foodshare to date, with a consistent supply of around 1500kg per month and will now also assist with deliveries as required.

Hazeldene’s were once again proud to be the major sponsor of the Bendigo Good Friday Family Day at Rosalind Park.
It was great to see so many families enjoying the activities in the park and surrounds and the annual Vision Australia Easter egg hunt.
