Host a Fund or Food Drive
Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbours in the Mandurah and Bindjareb community? Hosting a Fund & Food Drive is an easy and fun way to get involved and make a positive impact in your neighbourhood!
The Benefits of Hosting a Food Drive
When you host a food drive, you're doing more than just collecting non-perishable food - you're also engaging your community members and helping to spread the word on the issue of hunger and food insecurity. Plus, you get to show your neighbours that you care about their wellbeing. It doesn't matter if you do it in person or virtually - the impact of your drive will be felt for miles around!
Get Creative & Have Fun!
Hosting a Fund & Food Drive is a blast! You can have fun with it by coming up with creative ways to get your neighbourhood involved. For example, you could host a virtual food drive bingo game or a friendly competition to see which street can collect the most food. The possibilities are endless!

Host a Traditional Drive
Are you looking for a way to make a difference in your community? Why not consider running a food drive with your workplace, church, school, or other organization? It's easy and rewarding — and we've got the tools and tips to help you get started.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Choose sturdy containers to collect food in — think boxes, crates, and pails. And don't forget to collect funds, too! Dollars can go a long way in helping us feed more people in need.
Step 2: Spread the Word
Let your network know about your drive. Use social media, emails, or good old-fashioned word-of-mouth to get the word out. Tell people why you’re taking action and how they can help.
Step 3: Collect the Food
Don’t know what to collect? We’ve got you covered! Check out our Needed Items list for a quick overview of what we need most. From there, you can tailor your drive to the items that are most needed in the community.
Step 4: Drop It Off!
When you’re done, drop off your donations at the Community Food Services Centre. We’ll make sure the food gets to people who need it most.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s turn caring into action!
