Calling all Foodbank WA Supporters
The West Coast Eagles have been proud supporters of Foodbank WA since 2013 and that’s we are asking you to get behind their Million Meal Challenge on Saturday, 24 July to raise 1 million meals for Western Australians in need.
Every day many West Aussies don’t know where there next meal will come from, or how they will be able to feed their families. The COVID-19 pandemic has only increased the need for food assistance, with 28% of Australians had never experienced food insecurity before the pandemic.
With the end of Job Seeker, Job Keeper and rent moratorium in March as well as the impact of the pandemic and recent natural disasters still being felt across Western Australia we know that the demand for food assistance will continue to grow.
As supporters of Foodbank WA you know our purpose and passion is to support West Aussies with food assistance. Last year, we provided more than 6.4 million meals.
That’s why we are asking you to join the West Coast Eagles’ Million Meal Challenge to provide one million meals for West Aussies who need it.
Fran Ferreira, Acting CEO Foodbank WA said “If every West Coast Eagles and Foodbank WA supporters donate just $10 then we WA can provide one million meals. Your $10 donation provides 20 meals.”
“We are grateful for the continued support that we receive from the West Coast Eagles, its members and players, and we are thrilled to continue working with them to provide additional food to families in need throughout the State”.
“Together we can end hunger in Western Australia by 2030”. Mrs Ferreira said.
Now it is time for our supporters to become Game Changers to help their struggling WA team mates.
