Food Bank Emergency Food Relief

Foodbank Logo

Camperdown Food Bank is proudly run by Camperdown & District Community House to support members of our community who find themselves in need of food relief.

Camperdown & District Community House is a registered agency with Food Bank Victoria and Warrnambool Food Share, and offers this service to the entire Corangamite Shire region. Non-perishable food hampers and non food essential items, such as nappies and personal hygiene products, are available.
