Foodbank: share what you can

    Sun, 8.30pm - 11.30am.

Help us to feed the 117,260 South Australians that will go hungry this month by sharing what you ‘can’.

Westfield Shopping Centre has once again collaborated with Foodbank SA for their annual ‘Food Drive’. In the month of July, Foodbank SA will distribute food donation bins outside each Coles and Woolworths supermarket at Westfield Marion. Foodbank will rely upon the generous donations of Westfield visitors and Foodbank supporters in order to meet the increasing demand for food by vulnerable South Australians this winter.

Currently 117,260 South Australians will go hungry this month. One third of these are children. Our mission is simple - to feed hungry South Australians this winter. Our goal is to reach our donation target of 10 tonne of non-perishable food donations during the month of July to help those in need this winter.

The ask is simple – we ask South Australians to ‘share what they can’. Donating a non-perishable item bought from a store, or donating an extra can they have in their cupboard at home.

This year we have a shopping list of the foods we need to help get those vulnerable South Australians we support through this cold winter:

  1. Tuna
  2. Rice
  3. Spreads (jam/vegemite)
  4. Canned vegetables
  5. Canned fruit
  6. Pasta sauce
  7. Cereal
  8. Tinned meals
  9. Long life milk (UHT)
  10. Pasta sauce
