Host a Fund or Food Drive
Hosting a Fund & Food Drive is a year-round way to make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbours in the Mandurah and Peel community. Whether you collect non-perishable food through a traditional food drive or hold your food drive virtually, there are so many benefits to hosting a drive! Not only will you be engaging your community members and helping to spread the word on the issue of hunger and food insecurity, but you’re also providing an incredible service to your neighbours in need.
