Help Foodbank Feed Families
Did you know that a quarter of families living in disadvantaged areas do not have enough food to feed their families? Every week in Queensland 100,000 people rely on food aid from Foodbank Queensland, with a third of those being children. Around Australia about 40% of the food distributed via Foodbank is delivered to those in need in rural and regional areas, and the demand from these areas is increasing with the ongoing effects of the drought felt here in Queensland.
How can i get involved?
By purchasing a few extra cans or non perishable food items while shopping at Coles, Woolworths and ALDI.
Where to donate?
Drop your contributions in the collection cage at the front of the Coles on level 4 and ALDI entry on level 2.
Who is Foodbank?
Last year alone, Foodbank provided enough food for over 67 million meals. Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. It was first established in 1992 in NSW and now has a presence in every state and the Northern Territory with distribution centres in all state capitals as well as a number of regional centres. We operate with a staff of approximately 100 employees and over 3,000 volunteers.
Foodbank is a conduit between the food industry’s surplus food and the welfare sector’s need. Find out more about how we work.
