Belgrave and Tecoma Township Group (BTTG) was recently successful in obtaining a Yarra Ranges Township Group Network grant.

With the grant funding, BTTG is working with The Eatery in Tecoma and Mareesa’s Café in Belgrave to support those most in need in our community. Mareesa’s Café and The Eatery received $400 each towards a pay-it-forward scheme where community members recognised as in need of support can access free coffee, other drinks and some food items.

In addition, BTTG has partnered with The Eatery and Foothills Community Care to deliver $500 worth of meals through the Community Casseroles program. The Eatery will provide those meals directly to Foothills Community Care.

The demand for meals has risen this year with Community Casseroles now making and distributing around 900 meals per week, up from previous levels of around 200 meals per week. All funding included grant money and a donation from BTTG.
