Published on 15 September 2021

In late September, Council’s Disaster Recovery Hub will provide free meals to residents in rural areas as part of their Food for Thought - Community Food Van events. 

These new events, spread from Gundillion to Nerriga, are focused on providing support and hearing from local residents in regions that were affected by the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires and later extreme weather events. 

Each event aims to use a local catering company and will be run in a COVIDsafe manner.   

The Disaster Recovery Hub want to provide more than just a free meal with these events. The team will be using this as an opportunity to hear from small regional communities about what concerns them. These concerns can range from disaster preparedness and recovery to personal concerns for their community.  

The Disaster Recovery Hub team hope to bring these events back next year on a larger scale.
