Foodbank Queensland – fighting hunger through the Christmas season

As 2018 continues to fly by, Christmas is now right around the corner. At Edge, we recognise that the reality of Christmas is very different for many families in our community. Christmas isn’t always a time of celebration, family, friends and gift giving.

In lieu of providing Christmas cards to our customers each year, Edge donates to a local charity to help support members of the community who struggle through the Christmas season. This year, Edge will be donating to Foodbank Queensland.

Foodbank is the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, providing enough food for over 67 million meals last year alone. The aim of Foodbank is to combat food insecurity, which affects 15% of the Australian population. Foodbank works with the entire Australian food and grocery industry including farmers, wholesalers and retailers to provide food to those in need. Throughout the Christmas period, Foodbank creates Christmas hampers to give everyone an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy time with family and friends.

Together with Foodbank we can all make a difference this Christmas. Aside from monetary donations, Foodbank welcomes donations of food and services, including assistance with packing Christmas hampers in the lead up to Christmas Day. For more information and to provide a donation, visit
