Where To Donate

Home / About Us / How We Work / Where To Donate

Help us support food relief in Queensland by donating food items.

Foodbank Queensland works closely with community partners and retailers throughout the year to arrange can drives and collection points. If you wish to donate

What can you donate?

When donating food items for relief, there are a few guidelines that make the donation go a long way. As a general rule, sticking to canned goods and items that have a long shelf life are great places to start. Items such as rice, pasta and canned goods as well as toiletries condiments, meal bases and cereals are just a few examples. Please make sure all items are unopened and within their best before date.
