Foodbank Victoria named Yarra Trams Community Partner

We are very excited to be partnering with Yarra Trams as part of their Community Partnerships Program in 2020.

Yarra Trams is the largest, and one of the oldest, tram networks in the world and an iconic, much-loved symbol of Melbourne.

Just like our network of charity partners, Melbourne’s tram network brings people together by providing a service where everyone is welcome and included – no matter what their background, beliefs, preferences or abilities.

It’s at the heart of our community, connecting people to the places they want to go by providing a safe, sustainable, and inclusive travel option. And we know that with 5000 services a day, 1700 stops, and 487 trams in its fleet, Yarra Trams is playing a role in food relief too – transporting Melburnians on a daily basis to any one of our 280 metro-based charity partners for a warm meal, emergency food hamper or other vital support service.

The 2020 Yarra Trams Community Partnerships Program will provide $1 million of free advertising value to eight community organisations making a positive impact on diversity and inclusion in Melbourne. And this year, Foodbank Victoria is thrilled to have made the cut!

Keep your eyes peeled for us on Melbourne’s tram faces from October to December 2020, to celebrate our 90th year helping to feed Victorians in need.
