Global Care has received a very welcome donation – 14 palettes of fruit and vegetables, donated by Coles in Townsville.
Global Care coordinator Carrie-Anne Fisher said the truckload was very welcomed.
“There were oodles and oodles of potatoes, so many people will be able to have potatoes for meals, as they are free,” Carrie-Anne said.
“We also received huge red grapefruit, bananas, mushrooms and shallots – all Grade 1 quality.”
The produce was donated by Coles Townsville to Second Bite, a leading national food rescue organisation that works with a range of food suppliers to rescue surplus fresh food from across the network and redistribute it to local charities and non-profits around Australia.
Donation made possible by many companies and groups
This delivery from Coles Townsville to Global Care in Bundaberg was made possible through a number of companies and organisations.
“JAT/AHG Transport transported this amazing donation from Townsville to Bundaberg at absolutely no cost to us.
“Lindsay Brothers in Bundaberg also waived a freight charge to deliver this wonderful donation to us.
“My team at Global Care have done an amazing job to unload all this, and of course we wish to thank Second Bite and Coles Management – without them, none of this would be possible.”
All of the produce will be given out free of charge to the community.
“We have already given Angels 3 utility loads to date, and they have distributed it out into the community.
“Heritage Church of Bundaberg and Gin Gin have collected their quota to distribute to their relevant people that require assistance.
If any produce is left over it will be available at Global Care’s shop, which is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 9am til 2pm at 140 Elliott Heads Road.
All members of the community are able to access free bread and low cost groceries.
