Foodbank Queensland plea to support flood victims

Foodbank Queensland plea to support flood victims

Queensland's largest hunger relief charity Foodbank has put out an urgent callout to get emergency supplies to people hit by the floods. 

Foodbank Queensland CEO Sara Harrup said the charity was working hard to get food and clean water out to the communities in desperate need.

“We launched the Foodbank Queensland Flood Appeal 2022 and are calling out for help to ensure Queenslanders experiencing hardship have access to emergency food supplies and the clean water they desperately need,” she said.

“With many frontline food relief charities having been flooded and now unable to support their communities, Foodbank is prioritising getting more food and non-food emergency items to these areas, as they have little or no supplies remaining, and heightened demand.

“These prioritised regions include Caboolture, Ipswich and Logan. Many other charities across Toowoomba, Wide Bay-Burnett and South-east Queensland are also reaching out for urgent support. In these regions alone, Foodbank Queensland supports more than 250 charities each week.

“We are doing everything we can to get food out, but we need your help – 100 per cent of all donations will be used by Foodbank Queensland to get emergency food and water to those who need it the most as quickly as possible.

“This is not the first time our state has seen homes and businesses destroyed, but the one thing disasters bring out is the Queensland spirit – our communities are resilient and will rally together to help bring hope to those who have lost everything."
