About Food For Families
Food For Families is a way for you to support Uniting Emergency Relief services. By donating food and other essential items, you can ensure people facing crisis can access the basics they need to get through a difficult time.
In 2019, 73 tonnes of food and toiletries were pledged for individuals and families thanks to thousands of generous supporters like you. Those 70 tonnes will go some way to restocking our shelves for the months ahead.
Thanks to Eileen
Eileen and her family have been collecting Food For Families for six years now. Finding time to help others isn’t always easy with three children, but Eileen has found Food For Families to be a simple and effective way to give.
Her children love knowing that the goods they donate support families in their local area, and Eileen loves the important lessons they learn by being involved.

Thanks to Jess
Food For Families is a great way to bring family and friends together at Christmas. For the past three years, Jess has called on her nearest and dearest to help collect food and toiletries for families in need during the festive season.
Thanks to Mount View Primary School
Mount View Primary School have been part of Food For Families for an amazing 23 years. Each year the children get excited about donating, thinking carefully about what they will bring in. Last year they collected more boxes than any other school in Victoria.
