On October 15th from 7.30am - 12.30pm the RAA Foodbank Mobile Food Hub truck will be parked in the Colonnades car park near the Williams Shoes entry doors.

The Foodbank team will be collecting donations of food, groceries and personal items in their drive for anti-poverty. Their aim is to fill the truck with much need supplies that can then be distributed within our local community to those most vulnerable and in need.

You can donate tinned food, everyday household items, personal items, etc. As long as the seal has not been broken, the product unrefrigerated, past it's used by date and/or unlabelled.

Did you know that 126,000+ South Australians access food relief every month and charities report that 7,876 people in South Australia can't be assisted each month*. That's a lot of people going hungry!

If you miss the Mobile Food Hub you can also donate at our RAA store between 10th-18th October 2020.
