Help Foodbank this Christmas!
we are pleased to announce that for the tenth year running, Peninsula Fair and Retail First have teamed up with All Purpose Transport to raise 40 tonnes of food donations to assist with Foodbank’s increased demand for food assistance over the Christmas season.
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.
From now until Christmas, a donation box will be located outside Coles for customers to make a donation. Items like cans, a bag of pasta or a box of cereal – any non-perishable food items that could help a family in need.
Our goal is 40 tonne this Christmas season, ironically the amount of food that Foodbank distributes daily. Help us make a difference this Christmas season.
