Rockhampton Food Bank: Illuminating Christmas Hope for the Community

In the heart of Rockhampton, the Rockhampton Food Bank stands as a shining beacon of hope for those in need.

Nestled at 16 Robison St. Park Avenue, this essential service opens its doors every Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., offering assistance to those who require a helping hand.

A Call for Christmas Compassion

As the Christmas season approaches, the Rockhampton Food Bank invites those who are able to make donations.

They have a special request for ladies’ and men’s productstoiletriespasta, and tins of spaghetti and beans. Additionally, $60 vouchers can be purchased to provide struggling families with a helping hand in obtaining a hamper.

Register Once, Receive Ongoing Support

For first-time customers, a simple registration process awaits at the check-in desk. This one-time registration provides access to a treasure trove of fresh food and quality products, available at a nominal handling cost.

Covering Costs and Filling Hearts

The handling fee, which stands at $60.00 or can be covered using a Hands of Compassion (HOC)  voucher from participating agencies, goes a long way in sustaining this vital service.

It assists in offsetting towering electricity bills, rent, insurance, maintenance, and other ongoing costs necessary to keep the freezers and fridges running.

A ‘Real’ Value Proposition

What’s remarkable is that the value of the hamper items you select far surpasses the handling fee, ensuring you get the most from your contribution.

Unwrap the Spirit of Giving

In the spirit of the holiday season, the call for donations extends to all Christmas-themed items. The goal is to dedicate an entire shelf to these festive treasures, creating a truly special display. 

Donations can be dropped off conveniently every Tuesday to Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at 16 Robison St. Park Avenue. Come together as a community to jumpstart the giving spirit this holiday season.
