About the opportunities


Community Food Day

Help the ASRC provide free groceries and a delicious meal to people seeking asylum who would otherwise go hungry. The Foodbank volunteers handle everything from donations, to sorting food, to helping members make the best choices while shopping. Volunteers also prepare a glorious selection of curries, salads and desserts for over 200 people to enjoy together.

A delicious, nutritious lunch is provided as part of your day volunteering with us! However please bring snacks or your own lunch if you have any dietary requirements.

The cost is $84pp + GST.
