Demand for the food hampers we distribute to struggling families has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 Delta-induced lockdown. Since the most recent lockdown commenced we’ve been giving more than double the usual number of hampers to people who can’t make ends meet.

More often than not they are the working poor – casual workers or those with insecure jobs. They were the first to suffer a drop in income when the Delta-lockdown struck, meaning food hampers are more important to them than ever.

Indeed, our food hampers are making all the difference during lockdown. They include basics like tinned tuna, baked beans, rice, pasta, long-life milk and biscuits. It might not sound like much, but it’s keeping food on the tables of hungry families.

By donating items for our food hampers you can help us feed the homelss and hungry. Running a food drive is a great way to help, so we encourage you to collect non-perishable food items and supermarket gift cards.
