Get ready for the QPS Foodbank drive!

One in six people go hungry in Queensland every day – nearly a third of these are children.

The QPS Foodbank Drive kicks off in November and we’re calling on all generous Queenslanders to donate and help bring joy to people in need this holiday season.

Foodbank is the largest food relief organisation in Australia, collecting surplus and donated food to distribute to welfare organisations and community groups that feed the hungry.

Can drives play a huge part in collecting enough non-perishable items to help those seeking hunger relief.

As manufacturers and suppliers get smarter about over-runs and spelling mistakes, and with the introduction of pre-ordering, Foodbank no longer receives as many of these charitable donations as they used to.

Therefore public, corporate and school can drives are now bridging the gap on much-needed pantry items that Foodbank can send around the state!

We can’t do this without your help, so let’s work together and give those who are doing it tough the chance to have a Merry Christmas.
