Hands and Feet joins Foodbank in the fight against hunger in Brisbane
Hands and Feet is one of Foodbank Queensland’s 300 Member Charities providing essential groceries to support people in need.
After recently opening its first food relief service in Brisbane and partnering with Foodbank in March 2021, Hands and Feet is now helping approximately 90 people every week with free food and groceries and continues to expand its outreach to more communities across Brisbane.
Every week, Hands and Feet distributes food to local churches that offer food assistance from their premises. The churches choose a day and time that suits them best and arrange for a number of their volunteers to help distribute the food.
David Graham, Hands and Feet Brisbane Manager, said people in need were freely offered a small box or bag with a variety of food and essentials to take home.
“We help anyone that is doing it tough and needing some help to have something to eat,” David said.
“One Mum recently told us that she struggles to find sufficient nutritious food for her family of eight children and was incredibly grateful to have access to support on weeks when she couldn’t make ends meet.
“The food from Foodbank makes up between 65% and 70% of the food we are able to give out to help Queenslanders doing it tough.
“Thank you Foodbank Queensland for partnering with Hands and Feet and making it possible for us to support Queensland families that need help.”
If you are in a position to help Foodbank Queensland provide more food across the state to support Queenslanders in need, please consider joining the fight against hunger as a regular giver.
