Food For Families. Thanks to MichelleNovember 24, 2020
Participating in Food For Families means you can support the growing number of people reaching out to us for help this year in the wake of last summer’s devastating bushfires and COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2019, 73 tonnes of food and toiletries were pledged for individuals and families thanks to thousands of generous supporters like Michelle.
Michelle has worked with at-risk youth in Hobart for over 10 years and sees firsthand how access to essentials like food and toiletries can help people through a tough time in their lives.
“I enjoy helping people and saw a Food For Families ad on Facebook and decided that it’s a great appeal to take part in,” says Michelle.
“I put a call-out on Facebook encouraging people to donate and I started getting lots of messages from people wanting to donate. It took off like crazy.
“I started with 12 boxes and ended up filling 42 boxes.
“Community spirit is still strong, but people are time poor, especially leading up to Christmas. I figured if I co-ordinated things by dropping off and collecting boxes it would make it easier for people to donate.”
Food For Families is only possible thanks to supporters like you and Michelle.
