For over 3 years, IGA Meadowbank has been donating food to Christian Community Aid, and during this time they have made over 134 donations, and 128,728 meals.
“Without IGA Meadowbank we couldn’t feed the hundreds of hungry families that approach us seeking food relief on a regular basis” said Adelaide Collisson from CCA. “We heavily rely on their support to keep our food donation program going.”
The Food Rescue Program is one that the Meadowbank staff are very proud to be a part of, “At IGA we pride ourselves on being the heart and soul of the communities in which we serve.” said Meg Penny, IGA Meadowbank. “It feels good to know you have fed hungry people in your community every week.”
Likewise, since July 2021, IGA Marulan has established an inspiring relationship with Anglicare Goulburn, donating over 7,441 meals to date. “They really rely on the donations…for emergencies to help the homeless, domestic violence victims and families short on money.” said Ivan Wilson, Anglicare Goulburn.
Staff at IGA Marulan are equally as grateful to be part of the Food Rescue Program and take great pride in, “knowing that they are helping families in need.” said Lorraine Hill, IGA Marulan. “The staff enjoy hearing the stories and feedback from Anglicare and have developed a great relationship over the years.”
Our thanks go out to all the store owners and staff who are supporting the Food Rescue Program, to help those in need and create positive outcomes within their communities.
