Operation: Food Drive

About The Project

Operation: Food Drive is a project that was created and put in action by students from various schools from around Sydney, with support from MWLP. We realised that many people around the Canterbury Bankstown area are in need of non-perishable food, so this project is working towards helping support them. We are aiming to collect as many non-perishable food items as possible over the oncoming weeks. By doing this, we can donate these items to the Salvation Army so the non-perishable items can distributed to families in need. Our target is to collect 1000 meals! This program is running over the next 7 weeks, and any donations can help!
