The Melbourne Food & Wine Festival
The most recent Melbourne Wine & Food Festival was held in Jindivick recently. At Atticus we believe that diet and exercise are the mainstays of good health, having more home cooked food than takeaways, ensuring you are eating enough nutrients and getting enough exercise for your physical and mental health. This is why we were very proud to host a significant portion of this event on the future site of our new Jindivick clinic! We were so delighted to attend and get to meet some of the wonderful people in the local community. Floyd even got to meet Matt Moran! Matt Moran is an Australian celebrity chef and restaurateur. Some of our amazing team that attended this event was Floyd, Clare and Toria!
Funds raised by this event was donated to the Gippsland Emergence Relief Fund. It was the perfect day of fun, located an hour outside of Melbourne in the lovely and tiny town of Jindivick. It was a great day for families and groups to attend and make a day of it.
Multiple local pop-up stalls lined the streets offering exceptional food, drink and produce for purchase. All of which was complemented by entertainment! Including a town fair for kids, competitions and live music.
