Whenever there is a local festival or similar, you nearly always find that some of the stalls are being staffed by members of our U3A. So it was at the recent Community Food Aid Festival at Edendale.

The photo on the left is the Diamond Valley Community Support (DVCS) stall staffed by U3A member Mike Kelly together wuith DVCS President Sonia Gilderdale. DVCS are the official emergency relief organisation for Nillumbik, including for food relief.

The photo on the right is the Eltham LinC stall staffed by U3A member Ann Hutchinson together with her colleague (and fellow Gibber Gabber reader) Diana Warrell. LinC distribute food parcels and hampers to those who need them plus maintain a pantry at St. Margaret’s from which people can take food and toiletries.
