Curious how you can support our work in a meaningful, lasting way? 

Our corporate sponsorship program is a way for you to demonstrate your commitment to social responsibility and contributing to a healthy, equitable future for families in Victoria. 

Have you thought about how you can support accessibility to locally grown food in our communities?

Are you interested in improving the livelihood of local farmers, food producers and makers in our region?

This is your opportunity to get into alignment with your Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, in order to support organizations who represent the communities most impacted  by systemic and structural inequalities.  

Together, we can challenge hunger and poverty with dignity and compassion.

How does Sponsorship Benefit Your Business?

  • Brand awareness - We will include your logo on all our promotional materials,

  • Strengthen the community in which you do business - a thriving community leads to a thriving economy, 
     

  • Build a reputation as an enterprise that centres social responsibility, generosity and reciprocity, 
     

  • Increase employee morale - 88% of millennials say their job is more fulfilling when they are provided opportunities to make a positive impact on social and environmental issues, and 75% say they would take a pay cut to work for a responsible company (2016 Cone Communications Millennial Employee Engagement Study).
