macarthurcentral_2015_smallLast week we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to organise a can drive within a local shopping centre in Brisbane’s CBD – MacArthur Central. Corporate volunteers from NAB Corporate and McCullough Robertson took 2-4 hours out of their day to come down and encourage shoppers to donate what they could.

Each day the donations became more and more varied with items such as canned vegetables, meats and soups all the way to dried pasta and sauces. By the end of the week the collection had ammassed 1636 kg’s of donations – approximately 2180 meals that will be put to use making meals for community kitchens, vans, and food parcels.

A truly great humanitarian effort – we can not thank you all enough for your generosity in helping ease the burden of those struggling to put food on the table.

Why not run a food drive in your office? Not sure where to start – no problem for more information on how to organise your own collection or if you would like to make a donation to Foodbank Queensland click here.
