Foodbank is the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia. Last year alone, they provided enough food for over 40 million meals to charities and community groups who feed the hungry
Since 2009, Retail First has run several successful Foodbank campaigns resulting in raising over 350 tonnes of food for Foodbank and achieved over $1.4m in media exposure. This year in the lead up to Christmas, we are hoping to raise 40 tonnes of food for Foodbank.
From Monday 2 October 2017 until Sunday 31 December 2017 customers will be able to donate food products at the Foodbank cage located outside Coles. Foodbank will regularly collect these donations and then distribute them to charity and welfare organisations to provide to those who need it the most. Sealed items such as tinned food, pasta and pasta sauce, canned baked beans, rice, sugar, spreads and cereal, as well as baby food and personal care items are ideal.
We strongly encourage all customers to stand behind this amazing campaign and help raise much needed food to families in need.
