Peninsula Food and Wine with Love is an app, social media platform and website that started as a community initiative last year to support our food businesses during the pandemic.
It’s the brainchild of Isidora Love, a Peninsula resident who created a Facebook group to encourage the community to buy amazing food on the Mornington Peninsula and surrounding areas. This initiative exploded in the first few weeks with thousands wanting to join the group to support local – and it continues to grow.
It turned out to be a wonderful resource for the community, many of whom had no idea just how many amazing food businesses existed in our region and the variety that we all can enjoy.
According to Isidora, Peninsula Food and Wine with Love is the biggest only food and wine dedicated group in Australia, with more than 22,000 active users who want to know what food and wine is available from wineries, cafes, restaurants, takeaway outlets, bars, caterers, cake makers, platter makers and more.
To make it easier to access, an amazing app has been launched that supports almost 500 local food businesses. It allows businesses to set up their own online stores where customers can click, order and pay. This ordering platform carries no commissions, and 100 per cent of the profits stay here.
“The app has now been recognised as the only food app in Australia that is Australian-made and owned, based on the Mornington Peninsula,” Isidora says. “The website is widely used and extremely popular with locals looking for food, with thousands of hits a week.”
