BCH Inverloch Art Show Auxiliary

The Bass Coast Health Inverloch Art Show Auxiliary exists for the charitable purpose of alleviating food insecurity by providing food boxes to Bass Coast Health for distribution to local people in need, thereby helping to maintain the dignity and confidence of families and individuals in daily life and supporting their efforts to keep and find employment.  The main source of income for the auxiliary is our annual art show.

We are very grateful to the wonderful sponsors who support us - some have been with us for many years and others are new this year.  Please take the time to see who sponsored us and as a thank you for their generosity buy their products or use their services...all part of our local circular economy!  They are all listed at the bottom of this page. 

Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colours flowers, so does art colour life.

The Food Box Program

is operated by Bass Coast Health Family Support Centre and all the money we raise supports this program.

The Committee was set up in 1987 by Margaret Atkins, at the time a Home Economics teacher at Wonthaggi High School, who saw a need to provide nutritious food to some local families.

It originally raised money under the banner of Save the Children, the main fundraiser has always been the annual Inverloch Art Show. All money raised was sent to Save the Children and the money was dedicated to funding the Food Box Program

In 2011 Save the Children informed us that the money we raised would be pooled and they could no longer support a local program of our choice.

To continue funding the program we broke away from Save the Children and formed The Inverloch Art Show Committee Inc and now we operate under the auspices of Bass Coast Health as an auxiliary.

The food boxes are usually ordered in lots of 20 by BCH Family Support Centre and are expertly packed and delivered by Inverloch Foodworks. The auxiliary pays for the boxes, at an approximate cost of $75.00 per family box.  Pictured to the right is a typical food box with multiple layers of non-perishable food staples and toiletries which will provide support during a difficult time.
