“I came onto the Foodbank Victoria board as a representative of the Country Women’s Association of Victoria. In that role I have interfaced with the most dynamic, passionate and enthusiastic people who work and volunteer for this organisation and who all have a focus to help those in need in the best way we can. How can you not get involved when you see first-hand the food coming in, being packed and going out direct to those who need it. When you are in the field and talking with agencies who give out the food and look into the grateful eyes of those who receive food you cannot help but feel your work makes a difference.”
