AIP packs over 12,000 kg of food orders for local charities

Foodbank Victoria hosted members of the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) this week, as the organisation packed food orders and mixed grocery boxes as part of its volunteering program.

Over the course of one week, the AIP packed over 12,000 kg of food — equivalent to approximately 22,883 meals for the community, or enough to sustain a family of four with three meals a day for over five years. Foodbank Victoria does invaluable work supporting struggling Victorians, aiding 470 charities across the state.

The efforts supported Foodbank Victoria and 20 charities across the state, including the Salvation Army, Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, Father Bob McGuire Foundation, Quang Minh Temple, and the Dandenong and District Aboriginal Group.

Everyone is invited to attend the AIP volunteering days. For more information about in the next AIP volunteer day in September, please click here
