Year 10s Get Behind Eat Up Charity

The Geelong College's students have volunteered this morning to make 950 school lunches for disadvantaged children in the Geelong region.

The Year 10 Religious Education class enthusiastically took on the task of assembling, wrapping and packing the 950 sandwiches as part of the College's community service partnership with Eat Up Australia, before they were delivered by parent volunteers to schools around Geelong.

Eat Up founder Lyndon Galea was also on hand to supply all the ingredients and share the story behind his charity, which has grown to support 271 schools across Victoria. Last term, more than 58,500 sandwiches were made Victoria-wide for Eat Up.

This latest workshop on 19 July brings the College's total to more than 7500 sandwiches since our first workshop in mid 2017.

Thank you to the Year 10 class, student leaders Lachlan Sutherland and Cate Barr, parent distributors and staff helpers for another successful sandwich-making session.
