Reliance Foundation Joins Forces with Food Bank Victoria for the 2023 Food Drive: Igniting Collective Action

November 28, 2023

As the holiday season approaches, Reliance Real Estate is proud to announce its annual partnership with the Reliance Foundation for the Annual Food Drive in collaboration with Food Bank Victoria. This initiative, aimed at supporting communities in need, has become a tradition for the Reliance Network, showcasing the power of collective action and community engagement. 


Last Year’s Success

The previous year marked yet another successful food drive, exemplifying the dedication of the Reliance Network to a shared goal: collecting and donating essential items to support those facing challenges in our communities. As Christmas and the New Year draw near, the Reliance Foundation and the entire network are thrilled about the impact they can make by gathering donations that will bring joy and relief to many families during the festive season and beyond. 




Empowering Communities: Reliance Foundation’s Year-End Food Drive Igniting Collective Action

This year, the focus of the Reliance Foundation’s Year-End Food Drive is on empowering community action. In collaboration with Reliance Real Estate, the foundation aims not only to provide for those in immediate need but also to raise funds for several well-known foundations, including the Cancer Council, Beyond Blue, Red Nose Day, and more. It’s a testament to the commitment of the Reliance Network to making a positive impact on a broader scale. 


Food Bank Victoria: Feeding Australians in Need Every Day

The partnership with Food Bank Victoria is a crucial aspect of this initiative. In the past year alone, 3.7 million households in Australia ran out of food, highlighting the pressing need for support. Following one of the toughest financial years for Victorian and Australian families, the call for assistance has never been more urgent. Food Bank Victoria acts as the pantry for the charity sector in Australia, sourcing enough food to provide over 82 million meals last year. 




What to Donate

The Reliance Foundation encourages everyone to contribute generously by donating a variety of essential items that can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need. The suggested items include canned fruits, vegetables, seafood, soups, meals, breakfast cereal, pasta, noodles, rice, long-life milk, coffee, tea, spreads, muesli bars, dried fruit and nuts, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, and household cleaning items. 

The collection period for donations is from November 20 to December 15. Every dollar donated translates to two meals created, underscoring the impact that even a small contribution can make. The belief is that, together, the community can make a significant difference in the lives of those struggling during these challenging times.
