Mayor's Festive Food Appeal

Donate Now

As we approach the festive season, it is a time for joy, sharing and giving back to the wonderful Whitsunday community!

We are excited to introduce Mayor Julie Hall's new initiative, the 'Mayor's Festive Food Appeal', to help feed families who may not have the means to enjoy a festive feast this Christmas.

So how can you help?

Donate Food: You can drop off non-perishable items from the Christmas food box shopping list at one of our Customer Service Centres or Libraries.

Donate Money: If you don’t have time to get to the shops – don’t worry! You can purchase an entire box, half a box or even a quarter of a box by donating money via our website.

Spread the Word: If you don’t have the means to donate you can still support the Festive Food Appeal by sharing our message with your friends, family and neighbours.

It is our goal to create and distribute 100 Christmas food boxes this festive season. Let’s work together and make sure no one in our community goes without a festive meal this Christmas!

We require all donations by Monday 11 December to allow our Christmas Elves time to pack the Festive Food Boxes!
