Help Foodbank Feed Families

DONATE TO FOODBANK

For the tenth year running, Redbank Plaza has teamed up with Foodbank to donate food items to assist those families in need this Christmas.

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.

This year the campaign will again feature three well known Queensland Ambassadors, Petero Civonoceva, Natalie Gruzlewski and Shane Webcke, who have assisted in spreading the word to encourage Queenslanders to donate when doing their grocery shopping.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Simply purchase an extra item of food and drop it into the donation cage located outside Coles. So simple!

Each week, donations are collected by our campaign partner – All Purpose Transport – who take them to the Foodbank warehouse at Colmslie for distribution to Charity groups. Note: items donated will be distributed to farming families in need as well as local charities and food programs.

Every little bit helps.
