Help fill a box and give back. Register now.

Despite our success in collecting almost 60 tonnes of food and essential items last year, the increased demand we are experiencing due to the homelessness and cost of living crisis has left our pantries running critically low.

We want to support everyone who comes to us for help – but we can’t do it alone.

We greatly need your support to help us ensure that everyone who reaches out to us for help can put a meal on the table this Christmas and throughout the year.

Please register now and help us provide practical support for people when they need it most.

Food For Families. Thanks to Tami.

Tami’s frustration at the Christmas tradition of sweet advent calendars sparked a new way for her family to celebrate.

Tami creates her own ‘advent’ calendar which tells the family each day what food item to put in the Food For Families box they are gradually filling. Whether it be a tin of tomatoes or packet of pasta or box of tea leaves.

“The children really enjoy it…I wanted to teach them Christmas is about giving, it’s not just about receiving.” says Tami.

Tami and her family have been donating food at Christmas time for almost 10 years now. Not only has this tradition continued at home but Tami has also taken it to work.

Children’s compassion for the community.

When Louise introduced the Food for Families program to her students at Buninyong Uniting Kindergarten, she never knew how widely popular it would become among families.

Helping people every day of the year.

Mary gives regularly to our Food For Families program and has done so for almost five years. “There are people out there doing it really tough right now,” she said. “We need to band together and show our support.”
