Associations help Foodbank spread festive cheer

Wednesday, 10 December, 2014

Congratulations to over 130 members of the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA), Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), who spent their annual Christmas party packing hampers for Foodbank to distribute to those in need at Christmas.

This is the fifth consecutive year for the Foodbank Hamper Project and the hardworking volunteers packed a record 800 hampers for Foodbank’s clients, many of whom are without employment, families with young children and those living on the poverty line. The hampers are worth over $170 each and are made up of food and personal hygiene products.

The packing of the hampers was a culmination of twelve months of work, over $136,000 worth of goods donated to go inside the hampers and generous support from many companies across the country that assisted with collection.

In five years the event participants have packed 3200 hampers to the value of over $386,000.

If you would like to be a part of this event in 2015, or wish to donate items for the hampers, please contact the AIP on
