Rice and pasta donations are flowing in as Beaconhills College families help support the Feed Melbourne Appeal’s Rice and Pasta Drive.

Beaconhills has teamed up with Victorian charity FareShare’s Feed Melbourne Appeal to help support people struggling to put food on the table.

Rice and pasta are quick and filling staples found in the average Aussie pantry, but not everyone in Melbourne has access to food all of the time. The Foodbank Australia 2016 Hunger Report and Foodbank Victoria statistics showed one in 10 Victorians don’t know where their next meal is coming from and one in seven children go to school hungry.

Beaconhills’ Head of Citizenship and Service Clare Tuohy thanked families who had already donated and said the campaign would run until the end of May.
