Feeding hungry kids


For many, this time of year is all about fun, festivities, and feasting. However sadly for some, this can be the most difficult time of the year where even putting food on the table can be a real challenge. 


With school holidays fast approaching, a delegation from Sunshine Coast based Go Transit Community (the charitable arm of Go Transit Media Group) visited Foodbank Queensland’s Distribution Centre in Brisbane to lend a hand.


Leading the initiative, Go Transit’s Executive General Manger Andrea Coles said that it was an emotional experience for everyone involved. “It’s quite confronting to know that there are so many families in Queensland struggling to the point of wondering if there will be food on the table, or not. 


While we currently support Foodbank Queensland with advertising campaigns and fundraising initiatives to promote their important work, we wanted to go one step further and make a physical impact in helping”.


The team of 12 packed 300 food hampers in record time with the support of Foodbank Queensland staff and volunteers. 


The school holiday hampers are an extension of the 300 school breakfast programs Foodbank Queensland operates each year to make sure no Queenslander experiences hunger. If you would like to support Foodbank Queensland, please visit foodbank.org.au.
