Carranballac Food Drive

There are many families in our community struggling to provide the basics for their children.  Carranballac has decided to support these families with a food drive. Wicker baskets will be placed in the reception areas of both campuses so that parents, caregivers and anyone else can donate items for these families. These baskets will remain there so donations may be added at any time in an ongoing basis.


The food will be made into parcels and given to families on an as needs basis by the college’s Family Support Worker.


Any items are welcome; it may be a good opportunity to clear out your pantry of items you no longer use or items close to or just past their best before date. 


From time to time, we will let you know if there are any specific items we are short of, but staples will always be needed as well as things like soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, dishwashing liquid, washing powder etc.

Food Drive Donation Suggestions

  • Canned vegetables (to accompany rice and pasta dishes)
  • Cereals
  • Toiletries
  • Sanitary items
  • Toilet paper
  • Baking goods
  • Long life milk 

Your generosity is greatly appreciated, and received with our gratitude. 


Every donation no matter how small will be received with thanks, as all are valuable. If you have any questions about our Food Drive, please don’t hesitate to call Glenda, the Family Support Worker on 0488 548 653.


The Food Bank has been a huge success so far and I want to thank everyone who has contributed. Every donation is valuable and several needy families have benefited.




Apart from more of the same we are also looking for sanitary items, toilet paper and baking items. I take it for granted that I can bake my children a birthday cake but some families may not be able to do this. Deliveries are made on either a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this term so if anyone wanted to contribute butter, eggs, cheese or other dairy or fresh products they would need to be in the basket by Wednesday mornings.
