Give A Feed is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Heirisson, which started in 2011. Our target then was to supply 1,000 families in need with a Foodbank Christmas hamper and with the kind support of many we were able to help our goal of 1,000 families in need.
In 2018 Give A Feed set a goal of providing 2,500 Give A Feed Christmas Hampers to WA Families in need. With overwhelming support from the WA community, we were able to provide 3,033 Give A Feed Hampers to West Australian families so they could celebrate Christmas and not go hungry. This year we again hope to exceed our goal of supporting 2,500 WA families in need. Although this number seems like a lot, it sadly falls short of the number of people who may be going without food on Christmas Day; a figure estimated to currently be more than 94,000 West Australians.
To reach our target we need your generous support. For just $25 you can help us provide a Christmas food hamper to a W.A. family in need this Christmas. With the help of Foodbank WA, we turn your $25 donation into a Give A Feed Christmas Hamper which contains ingredients to provide a festive meal for a family of four. Each Christmas hamper is packed by volunteers and distributed by the Foodbank WA network to West Australian families in need just in time for Christmas so they can enjoy Christmas Day and not go hungry.
You can support Give A Feed by donating personally, Gift A Feed on behalf of someone special as a gift, become a Gold Plate Member or get involved as an Honourable Partner. You can even help by simply sharing this with your social network.
Thank you for your support. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
