With media attention relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential spread throughout our region we understand it may be causing concern within our community.
In order to streamline our logistics and protect our volunteers we have decided to consolidate our operation effective Monday 23rd March 2020 with the closure of our Lt Smythe St minimart.
We confirm until further advised the GFRC Freedman St North Geelong mini mart operation will continue to trade daily 10-3pm whereby voucher recipients will continue to redeem their vouchers.
To protect the welfare of all who visit our Freedman St site security will be employed during our operating hours, allowing controlled access to our site.
Further to the above operational changes, we also advise that due to circumstances beyond our control including immediate changes to Food Bank Victoria’s logistics, bulk distributed fresh, chilled, frozen and ambient food will be strictly limited or unavailable until further notice.
GFRC will continue to navigate through this unprecedented emergency, although we foresee challenging times ahead for all working within the welfare sector.
Thank you for your on-going support and understanding and we will continue to keep you updated.
CEO GFRC Inc
