Give a Christmas Hamper

Christmas raises expectations in all of us of happy times, good food and gifts. For many families, however, it is just another stress on top of the daily challenges of living. The added expense of providing special things for their family can be overwhelmingly difficult and none of us would want to see our children without a decent meal and a present under the tree. For others, especially those who are alone, it might not seem that anyone cares and it's not worth making the effort.

This is where Feeding Families can help.

Feeding Families is built around the generosity of people willing to help those less fortunate than themselves to enjoy Christmas.

We accept requests for hampers from anyone who is in genuine need (subject to meeting our criteria), and we match them up with kind hearted people who donate a Christmas Hamper full of everything to make a special Christmas dinner. It's just one less thing for the recipient to have to worry about.

Our matching process will open later in the year, and we will accept registrations from donors from about October. Head on over to our Facebook group, or join our mailing list to keep up to date with this.

In the meantime, we arrange all sorts of fund-raising activities during the year. Take a look at our Volunteer section for information on activites near you.
