Donate A Cake
The Lions Club of Park Orchards, as part of our annual Christmas Cake Drive has introduced a fantastic new initiative called “DONATE A CAKE”.
You now have the option to purchase a ‘Donation Certificate’ here and send a 1kg Lions Christmas Cake or Pudding to Foodbank Victoria.
This is a wonderful way for the less fortunate to receive a little something extra during what can be a vulnerable time of year for many people.Donate Now
In the last year, more than one in five Australians (21%) have been in a situation where they have run out of food and been unable to buy more.
At least once a week, around half of food insecure people skip a meal (55%) or cut down on the size of their meals to make their food go further (50%). At least once a week, three in ten food insecure Australians (30%) go a whole day without eating.
