Rotarians and friends have helped set a new Give a Feed record — over 3130 hampers this year. Thank you all!
 

On behalf of all hamper recipients, thank you Rotary across Western Australia for supporting "Give a Feed" this year. You have helped set a new record of over 3,130 hampers. 

Over the past decade, Rotarians and their personal and corporate contacts have gifted over 22,400 hampers and fed close to 90,000 Western Australians in need during the festive season. In the process individuals and businesses have contributed nearly $470,000.  THANK YOU ALL! 

This festive season, more WA families than ever are doing it tough, including people with disabilities or unwell, and their carers, single parents, and grandparents raising grandchildren, those unemployed or working poor, among many others.

Through Give a Feed, Rotary across WA helps such families.

Each $30 Give a Feed hamper has enough food for a family of four to celebrate this festive season. By wholesale bulk-buying, working with Foodbank WA, each hamper has non-perishable produce worth at least twice that value.

Tradespeople, professional firms, other businesses and individuals supported this initiative through corporate giving: as honourable partners; by gifting hampers on behalf of others; or by direct donations. All are tax deductible as Foodbank contributions, while also tangibly delivering "Service above self" in a very practical way! It's a "Win, Win, Win"!

For firms and individuals looking to build relationships, this is a way to acknowledge efforts of staff, customers, clients, or suppliers, or simply valued work colleagues, family and friends.

Donors leveraged their social investment, because Give a Feed enables socially responsible action during the festive season.

From the mid-November launch, through the late November packing days, and early December Give a Feed comedy feast with Peter Rowsthorn, the Give a Feed team worked tirelessly with Foodbank WA and corporate partners to again bring about the best hamper result since inception.

Whatever your way of celebrating, we wish you a fantastic festive season and a better new year for all. May 2021 bring you all the better things in life.

 

"Give a Feed" is an initiative for Rotary in Western Australia, led by Heirisson Rotary, working with Foodbank WA, Imagination Media and other partners.
