Help Feed Geelong this Christmas

We invite you to donate non-perishable food items for families in need

While food assistance is an issue in our community all year round, it is a bigger issue at Christmas as many welfare and community organisations that provide food assistance close over the holiday period. This means that hundreds of families may go without food over Christmas.

In addition to valuable funds we invite you to also donate non-perishable food if you are able.

You can help support members of the Geelong Food Assistance Network who will be assisting these families this Christmas by donating food for hampers and baskets including:

ESSENTIAL FOOD ITEMS

  • Long life milk
  • Pasta and Pasta Sauce
  • Tinned Vegetables
  • Tinned Fruit
  • Tinned Meat
  • Cooking Oil
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cereal
  • Tinned Salmon or Tuna
  • Rice
  • Breakfast spread

CHRISTMAS FOOD AND SNACKS

  • Plum pudding
  • Lollies
  • Jelly
  • Cake Mix
  • Candy Canes

You can deliver food to our Collection Point at the Give Where You Live Foundation office,
18 Myers Street, Geelong until Friday, 7 December 2018.
