– Kathy Calvin –

Every week for the past decade Avocare have helped disseminate meals to a growing number of people in Melbourne’s south-east. Who, for unforseen reasons have no access to food to feed their families let alone themselves.

Over this decade Avocare have been the central collection point for emergency food relief and material aid, and we are committed and passionate today to continue to provide these vital services at no cost to all partner charities who, like Avocare have witnessed the ever increasing demand for this essential community service.

Over the past 10 years we have never asked our partners for support, now however we need your help.

The lease on our current premises is due to expire. Although we have been searching for an alternative site for nearly 6 months, finding a suitable location in the City of Greater Dandenong has proven far more difficult and far more expensive than we anticipated.

In order to continue our charitable work and to assist with re locating we have launched a Crowd Funding initiative which is asking for your assistance.

Below is a link to the Avocare “Have a care for Avocare” campaign.

We are hoping to raise sufficient funds to cover the cost of our relocation.

If you can please share our campaign link ( with your networks, friends and families we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.
