Whittlesea Food Collective

A sustainable food relief program

Whittlesea Food Collective is an initiative launched in late 2019 by Whittlesea Community Connections and the Whittlesea Emergency Relief Network.

WFC supports people experiencing hardship with free food and material aid, help paying bills and accessing other services that can provide assistance. It also provides opportunities for people to volunteer and participate in community activities.

WFC is part of a broader project, the Whittlesea Community Farm and Food Collective, which is a partnership between Whittlesea Community Connections, Yarra Valley Water, Melbourne Polytechnic and City of Whittlesea

Our Vision

Whittlesea Food Collective aims to develop an integrated response including food production and distribution, plant and food based enterprises, recycling and waste reduction, learning and employment pathways.
