Pop Up Foodbank: Picabeen Community Centre.
This Pop Up event will be the first of its kind for Foodbank Queensland who has partnered with Picabeen Community Association to distribute food to those in need this winter.
Foodbank will Pop Up at Picabeen for a free giveaway, open to all in need in the community to access healthy and nutritious food. We will be bringing along bins of fresh fruit & veg plus pre-packed hampers for distribution.
Our July Pop Up will be held at Picabeen Community and Neighbourhood centre located at 22 Hoben Street, Mitchelton on Monday 30th from 4pm. As an added bonus we will also have the help from some of the Broncos Young Guns players on the day.
Picabeen’s Youth and Community Worker Jane McDonald had the following to say about the importance of providing a food relief service to community members.
“Our staff and volunteers deliver quality support services, activities and opportunities with respect for the diversity of residents in local areas. Picabeen provides food parcels and Christmas hampers to the community with the help and support from Foodbank and locals. With this, we are able to assist hundreds of families in their time of need.” says Jane.
Foodbank is thrilled to have the opportunity to help our frontline charities distribute to those in the community experiencing food insecurity which is why we are seeking corporate support to fund more such events in the future.
These pop-ups represent fantastic corporate volunteering opportunities to help families struggling in our communities. If you would like to find out how your business can support one, please contact our friendly staff.
