Share some tins of food to help the vulnerable
Many South Australians are doing it tough. They do not know where their next meal is going to come from and some are even homeless.

You can help to feed the 117,300 South Australians who will go hungry this month by sharing whatever you are able to.

This will be daily from 1st July to 31st July 2019 and the address is Westfield Marion, 297 Diagonal Road, Adelaide.

Westfield Marion Shopping Centre has once again joined forces with Foodbank SA for their annual Food Drive. During the month of July, Foodbank SA will give out 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 so that they can meet the increasing demand for food by vulnerable South Australians this winter. One third unfortunately are children.

The Foodbank's mission is quite simple - they just want to feed hungry South Australians this winter. Their goal is to reach their donation target of 10 tonnes of non-perishable food donations during the month of July to help those in need this winter, so please help to achieve this target!


The ask is simple they are asking that South Australians share what they can by donating a non-perishable item bought from a store or donating an extra can of food that they have in their cupboard at home.

This year, they have a shopping list of the foods that they need to help get those vulnerable South Australians 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

About Foodbank
Foodbank is Australia's largest food relief organisation. They operate on a scale that makes it extremely important to the work of the front line charities, who are attempting to feed vulnerable Australians.

Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food gathered from various places for food relief organisations nationwide.

Their mobile food hub is taking food to where it is needed the most. In 2019, Foodbank SA launched its first Mobile Food Hub and this was designed to bring much-needed food to families who were really in need of this.

Together with their welfare agency partners, the Mobile Food Hub will work on a referral system. This will ensure that those taking advantage of the service are in genuine need of food relief and the food relief efforts are going exactly where it is needed the most in South Australia.

The Mobile Food Hub has also been designed to assist families during natural disasters and support drought-affected regions in the future.
