Kardinia Park Stadium Trust staff will join Geelong Cats players and staff at the Food Purveyor in Geelong to accept and sort critical items to be donated to Foodbank Victoria.
The Geelong community can get behind the initiative with donations going towards Foodbank Victoria’s bushfire emergency food relief appeal to help families affected by the bushfires.
Critical items to donate include cereal, pasta sauces and simmer sauces, rice, pasta, tinned food (with a ring pull), noodles, muesli bars and other ready-to-go foods, feminine hygiene products and personal care products.

Foodbank Victoria is the State’s official emergency food and water relief organisation, under the State Emergency Relief and Recovery Plan. As fires broke out across East Gippsland, they immediately responded, delivering urgent food relief and water to those affected areas via air, sea, and road.
As the crisis grows, thousands more Victorians, including firefighters, are in desperate need of food relief and water. They need urgent financial donations to continue providing vital food and water to Victorian families affected by the bushfires.
With conditions expected to worsen over the coming weeks, this is going to be a long and ongoing situation and we require all the assistance we can during this devastating time.
