Bennelong continues sponsorship of Foodbank’s Hunger Ride

Bennelong Funds Management is once again proud to team up with Foodbank Victoria as a major sponsor of The Hunger Ride, to be held this November.


The Hunger Ride provides an opportunity for companies to get their work mates together and take on a challenging 185km ride through Victoria’s most beautiful countryside and difficult terrain. Riders are part of a fully supported peloton and have the opportunity to ride alongside a number of well-known figures – including Australia’s voice of cycling Matt Keenan and former professional road cyclist Simon Gerrans.

After the success of the last Hunger Ride held in March 2022, which raised over $150,000, Bennelong is sponsoring the event for a second time, helping to ensure Foodbank Victoria can stage the ride and raise crucial funds for Victorians in need. Funds raised will help Foodbank Victoria support the state’s most vulnerable and provide emergency food relief.

Bennelong’s CEO, Craig Bingham, is thrilled to once again take part in the ride himself, which supports the community in a meaningful way that aligns with the company’s values.

“Foodbank’s work to feed families in need continues to be critically important. We’ve all seen the footage of the queues at Foodbank’s drive thru in July and riding myself is a very small hardship compared with what so many people are going through,” says Craig.

“It’s our privilege to support Foodbank via Bennelong’s sponsorship of the Hunger Ride.”

Craig will be riding in the Bennelong Funds Management team alongside Keenan and Gerrans.

“When cyclists meet up, you recognise in each other this crazy passion for jumping on a bike and pushing yourself – sometimes way past your limits!” says Dave McNamara, CEO of Foodbank Victoria.

“What I love about The Hunger Ride is that it taps into that never-say-die mentality to help others doing it tough. Being able to bring the riding fraternity together with our good mates at Bennelong to help feed 50,000 people a day who need support right now is worth every bit of pain.

“Bennelong’s leadership and support is exceptional, and we’re chuffed at the idea of Craig being puffed with the rest of the Bennelong Funds Management team.”

Bennelong is an award-winning investment company that is recognised and respected for partnering with high performance boutiques to deliver exceptional outcomes for investors across the globe.

With more than 90 years’ experience providing food relief, Foodbank Victoria is the largest and oldest food relief charity in the state. Foodbank Victoria currently provides an average of 1.5 million meals to Victorians every month, delivered via a network of more than 450 charity partners across Victoria.
