News: Update on the Westminster City Council Ban

Westminster City Council are still threatening to enact the law forbidding the distribution of free food in Victoria.


Simon Community Director Bob Baker attended a large consultation meeting on 21st May hosted by the council and attended by councillors, local residents and representatives from organisations providing soup runs, and other interested parties.


The meeting set up a further consultation structure and Alison Gelder (Head of Housing Justice) and Bob Baker have been elected by the members of the Soup Run Forum to represent the forum in the coming negotiations to find a constructive way forward.


Thanks to everyone who has supported us in our efforts to find a constructive solution to the problem.
