Are you looking to run a Christmas Food Drive for Foodbank?

Hunger is one of Australia’s best kept secrets, yet it impacts more than 117,260 South Australians every month. One third of these are children. They are families like yours, they might live in your street. But because they suffer in silence, you would never know.

Running a Christmas Food drive is a great way for organisations and schools to help supply the non-perishable items that are always needed by Foodbank and especially at Christmas time. Our most wanted items are those everyone has in their pantries. All food donations of in date shelf stable products are welcome.

All South Australian organisations and schools are welcome to participate. Food donations will go to your local Foodbank in Edwardstown, Berri, Mount Gambier or Whyalla.

All donations are weighed and your organisation or school will be advised how much they have collected.

To register please complete the form below.  You may also like to read through our Christmas Food Drive FAQ including access to posters to support your food drive.

  • Please advise the estimated completion date/delivery of your Food Drive to Foodbank.
