JMC Academy has teamed up with Foodbank Victoria

JMC Academy has teamed up with Foodbank Victoria to help launch their Warm Up Winter campaign which aims to raise $100,000 for the 500,000 Victorians struggling to meet the cost of living.

08May2013_0789.jpgOur talented students have created four short films, illustrating how donated food is distributed and turned into a nutritious meal for a Victorian living in crisis. David McNamara, CEO of Foodbank Victoria estimates that 1,725,000 meals will be required to feed Victorians doing it tough this winter. 

Hollywood filmmaker and Producer of the upcoming Michael Hutchinson biopic Two World’s Colliding, Bobby Galinski, donated his wealth of experience to the students to help them capture the hardship experienced by so many Victorians on a daily basis. Mr Galinski said he was glad he could play a part in helping drive donations for such a worthy cause.

“Most people sitting down to eat their daily meals don’t often think about how many less fortunate people there are out there, who may never know where their next meal will come from,” Mr Galinski said.
