The tally is in! Foodbank has had a busy couple of months thanks to collaborative activities and partnerships raising both awareness and much needed funds.

Picabeen Pop-Up: Picabeen Community and Neighbourhood Centre hosted Foodbank Queensland’s very first Pop Up for which more than 90 hampers were distributed to recipients on the Northside of Brisbane. We were so very grateful to the neighbourhood centre for opening their courtyard to us enabling the community to access food in such an efficient way. On the day we had help from Brisbane Bronco Josh McGuire and Shaun Nona of the Broncos Younguns.

Annual Golf Day: Total money raised for this year’s event was $56,000 which included team registrations, raffle tickets sales, our live auction, and other on course competitions. This year we were joined by Foodbank Queensland ambassador Petero Civoniceva recently inducted into the NRL hall of fame making the rounds and discussing all things rugby and Foodbank.

Paint Me A Cake: An art exhibition & auction of works by Merton Chambers raised over $8300 with the net proceeds being donated to Foodbank Queensland. It was a great night spent celebrating Merton & his passion for cakes and charitable giving. We’d like to thank Merton for his kind words and generous donation not to mention all who attended making it the great evening that it was! Cookbooks are still available for sale, contact our office admin should you wish to purchase your own one of a kind cook book for $30.

Without the efforts of our benevolent donors and supporters we would not be able to make a difference in the lives of fellow Queenslanders. If you would like to hear more about future activities or raise funds on behalf of Foodbank we would love to hear from you.
