*This is an ongoing monthly event, please disregard the date.
Community Care Network, in support of Halal Food Bank, supports the Melbourne School Drive where an ongoing monthly donation of non-perishable food items are collected from schools and distributed to organisations that work with disadvantaged children and their families, refugees and asylum seekers, and those who require crisis support across Melbourne.
Help us in get more schools and students involved in this initiative so students can learn about supporting their community and those who are unable to afford basic and staple food. Part of this initiative is to educate students on nutritional requirements and the impacts of poor food choices or lack of appropriate nutritional options.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in packing food parcels on the allocated monthly packing days at Halal Food Bank. This can be done as an excursion, or we can hold a packing day event at the school with food collected by students.
Please contact Community Care Network via facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you or anyone you know may be interested in getting involved.
