Canned foodThanks to a program between Brisbane City Council and Foodbank Queensland, you can assist people in need by grabbing a few extra tins of food at the supermarket or from the kitchen cupboard and dropping them off at your local library.

The program is running until February 18 and Foodbank will be looking after the distribution to families needing flood relief.

“Foodbank is a non-denominational, charitable organisation which sources donated and surplus food from the food and grocery industry to distribute to welfare and community agencies that provide food assistance to people in need.”

Check the opening hours of your local libraries before dropping off the tins of food:

It is important to note that this is for CANNED FOOD ONLY.
