A not for profit organisation established to provide nutritious, healthy food to individuals and families experiencing hardship in the Colac and District region.

Foodshare does this by giving organisations access to free, healthy and nutritious food hampers to help improve the health and wellbeing of their clients.



Colac and District Community Foodshare operates as a central Emergency Food Relief dis-tribution hub for rescued food provided by Foodbank Victoria that is distributed to local welfare organisations, schools and community meal programs.


Our mission is to promote the health and wellbeing of the Colac and District community by providing access to free, nutritious food to food insecure families.


Colac and District Community Foodshare relies on the support of our local community. Without this support Foodshare could not operate.
