What is a food drive?

It’s where an individual or group of people help fight hunger by donating non-perishable food items. Food drives are very popular amongst schools, local clubs, small businesses and corporate organisations.

What items can I donate?

We welcome all non-perishable food items that have not passed the expiry date. Here are some examples of popular donations:

  • cereal
  • canned fruit and vegetables
  • canned fish
  • canned soup
  • noodles
  • rice
  • pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • baked beans and spaghetti
  • spreads

We also accept personal hygiene and household items. A few examples of these donations are:

  • deodorant
  • soup and body wash
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • baby wipes
  • nappies
  • lady sanitarian items
  • dish washing liquid
  • washing detergent

The lists above are examples of donations to get you started. Please don’t feel limited to our suggestions – we will accept non-perishable food, alcohol free and tobacco free donations.
