VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Not-for-profit organisations are always on the lookout for people to roll up their sleeves and help out. Consider volunteering with food rescue organisations such as Foodbank or OzHarvest, which provide food to people and charities that need it most.
If spare time is hard to find, not-for-profit organisations that are feeding those less fortunate always welcome donations.
CREATE A FOOD DRIVE
Get your community, workplace, school, or friends and family involved in a food drive. Contact one of your local charities or food rescue organisations about coordinating a food drive for them of non-perishable items, and then motivate everyone to donate. There are some great tips on organising food drives by Foodbank and OzHarvest.
LOOK TO YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL
Does your local school need a breakfast club? Every child deserves breakfast and sometimes this doesn’t happen in the home, so Kellogg’s runs the Breakfast Buddies program. The program supplies schools, school centres, outback and indigenous communities, sporting clubs, child and learning forums, and other community groups with Kellogg’s cereals while providing information on the importance of breakfast.
