This one is to our wonderful school community who contributed to the ARCS foodbank:
Dear Fairhills High School Community,
On behalf of the ASRC Foodbank, we want to say a huge thank you for your most generous donation of food. It is inspiring for us to experience the generosity of people in our community such as you, and your donation goes a long way towards making our members’ lives a little easier.
The Foodbank operates as a free grocery store for more than 1000 people seeking asylum, providing food that is nutritious and culturally appropriate. Most of these people rely on us as their sole source of food, as they are denied the right to earn an income from work, or can only access limited funds. Demand on our service has risen sharply since the onset of the pandemic
Without income, the Foodbank plays a vital role in ensuring that those seeking asylum in our community have access to a reliable source of healthy food and basic household items.
We couldn’t do it without you! The majority of all groceries in the Foodbank are donated by generous supporters just like you.
