Food For Change

18th July 2024

We would like to announce Mornington Secondary College’s chosen Charity for 2024!

After much thought about which local charities we believed we could contribute to this year, and any suggestions and conversations with our student council, we have chosen to donate our fundraising money collected this year to Food For Change!

Food For Change is an organisation who’s mission is to alleviate food insecurity in Australia and making sure that no person or family goes hungry, no matter their background or circumstance. The sad reality is that one in five Australians have experienced food insecurity in the last 12 months. 

In simple terms this means that one in five Australians have not had access to sufficient food or food of a standard quality to meet basic needs. To combat this, the team at Food For Change grow fresh and nutritious foods on their farms, lead food rescue initiatives with IGA, other food retailers and food relief agencies by providing them with the foods necessary. 

Since 2016 Food For Change have delivered millions of meals to those in need.

Everything we make from our year level fundraisers this year will go toward Food For Change and their mission. We believe that this is a very relevant cause at the moment, with the cost of living becoming difficult for a growing number of families in the past few years, we acknowledge the struggle that this is becoming for more people across the country and we want to help to change this, and so by holding our fundraisers we ask that every student who wishes to participate, to bring a gold coin donation, because even a little can go a long way. 

We believe in change and we believe we have the power to make change. 

We encourage everyone to visit their website and look further into supporting them.
