FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Foodbank Victoria

 

Foodbank Victoria is an independent not-for-profit organisation with more than 80 years’ food relief experience. They are the state’s oldest and largest organisation of our kind.

1 in 10 Victorians don’t know where their next meal is coming from and 1 in 7 children go to school hungry.

Their aim is to provide healthy food for all.
Each month, they source and distribute food to 134,000 Victorians who rely on our food assistance – including 38,000 children.

They collect surplus food from across Victoria, weigh and sort it into orders, then distribute it to a network of over 900 community partners to feed hungry Victorians.

FAQs

Is it a free event?

A gold coin donation will be appreciated to fundraise for Foodbank Victoria. There will be Foodbank volunteers with donation tins at the main entrances and around the event.

What form of payments are there?

You can pay via cash or card. Please note there are no ATM’s at the venue, so come prepared!

Can people under 18 attend?

It is a family friendly event. As there is alcohol at the event, you must be over 18 to enter and purchase in the licensed beer garden. Please bring a valid form of identification with you on the day just to be sure (Passport or driving license). Minors can enter the beer garden ONLY with a responsible adult. See further details at: https://www.vcglr.vic.gov.au/community-services/proof-age/under-18-patrons-licensed-premises

Can I smoke?

Amendments to the Tobacco Act came in to effect from 1 August 2017. The amendments place restrictions on smoking at events with food.

In summary, smoking is banned:

o   In all outdoor areas at food fairs where the principal activity is the supply of food for the consumption of the event. E.g. Food Truck Events/Markets.

o   In all outdoor areas within 10 meters of food stalls and vans at organised outdoor events (other than food fairs), including community or street festivals.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes we love dogs and Gasworks is a dog friendly park! Please make sure they are on a leash and that you clean up after them. However, we take no responsibility for any incidents that occur during the event.

 

When do the bars close?

All bars serving alcohol will close at 6.45 PM.

 

What sort of behaviour is unacceptable?

DONUT FEST is a celebration of all things Donut. It will be a fun and festive atmosphere, so drunk and anti-social behaviour will not be accepted.

 

I’ve got a couple of other random questions, what should I do?

Easy. Drop us an email at eat@donutfest.com.au and we’ll get right back to you.
