Share What you Can this Christmas!

Hunger isn’t something you see. It’s something you feel.

Currently 117,260 South Australians are accessing food relief every month. One third of them are children.  Despite Foodbank SA distributing more than 5 million meals in 2017/18, we still need an additional 30% more food just to meet the current levels of demand in SA.

On Wednesday 5 December ABC Radio Adelaide are joining forces with Foodbank for their Christmas Food Drive ‘Share what you CAN’.  We are calling on South Aussies to donate a CAN of food or other non-perishables at drop off locations across Adelaide on their way to work between 6:30am to 9am.
