About Food For Families

Food For Families is a way for you to be part of sharing joy this Christmas and throughout the year to come. 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 2018, close to 50 tonnes of food and toiletries were distributed to individuals and families thanks to thousands of generous supporters like you. Those 50 tonnes only saw us through to July 2019, so we need to think bigger and bolder this year. We’re increasing our target to 70 tonnes, which means we need you to get on board.

There are lots of ways for you to be part of Food For Families this year.

Thanks to Eileen

Eileen and her family have been collecting Food For Families for five 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
