Demand on local support services and sourcing essential items like food has become more difficult during this time.
Council is working with local agencies and providers to source and deliver food and material relief to vulnerable members of the Greater Dandenong community.
Over the past three weeks, Council has supported the distribution of 15 tonnes of food to our community, including fresh fruit, vegetables and non-perishable food.
Council is doing our best to support community members that are most in need and encourages everyone to continue to support one another during this challenging time.
The Victorian Government is providing emergency relief packages for individuals and businesses affected by COVID-19.
If you need support
All people seeking Emergency Food and Material can contact the COVID-19 Hotline on 1800 675 398.
