The ASRC’s annual Festive Food Drive is on again this year, and the impact of your support has never been felt more widely.
With the increase in the cost of living and people seeking asylum relying on the ASRC Foodbank, we are calling on our community of compassion to help us put food on the table for approximately 1,200 people each month, who have no safety net and no other means of support in Australia.
Where: ASRC Car Park for drop-offs- opposite 46 Albert St, Footscray 3011
When: 10AM – 2PM on Sunday, December 3rd.
Essential food items are our priority, and sticking to the list ensures that our community’s needs are met, and we make the most out of your donation. We would love your donations of:
ITEMS WE DON’T RECEIVE/NEED
– Please note that the ASRC does not need baked beans, tinned spaghetti, or tinned soup.
– At this time, we do not require toys or household items or clothes
