Shout4Good - Doing business differently
Businesses in our region are doing things differently during these challenging times. So we’ve started a list of businesses trying new and innovative ideas and we’ll be distributing this information across our social media platforms and via our newsletters.
If you are doing things differently or would like to do a shout out for someone else, tell us the details by filling out the form below. Your submission will be approved by our Business Help Desk and a list of businesses will be listed on this page. Check back soon for updates.
Innovative local initiatives include:
- Sharing excess food
- Zero contact delivery
- Self-isolation packages
- Not accepting reusable cups
- Extending takeaway options or frozen pre-prepared meals
- Promoting the use of environmentally-friendly takeaway containers
- Extra staff meetings to promote mental health
No ideas are too out there – we’re encouraging you to do things differently!
The City, in partnership with Be.Bendigo, is urging the community to shop locally wherever possible to help protect local businesses and jobs.
