Did you know that about 500,000 kids have gone to school today without breakfast and/or lunch?
Do you want to do something about kids in your community going hungry?
You can use YOUR superpowers and help stop kids going hungry!
Caloundra State High School understands how important it is to help support your local community. The Junior School Council are encouraging the whole school to participate in our One=One Campaign to raise money for rural schools.
All money raised will go towards breakfast and lunch programs in rural schools, through our rural schools grants program, to ensure all kids have a full tummy every day!

Has finished for another year- we are so grateful for the generosity of the Australian public- check out our thankyou graphic to see how many meals we will be able to create-THANK YOU!
Hunger is a community issue that needs a community solution. Together we can help those who are struggling to afford a meal.
We raise funds, awareness and capacity to provide hope for people going hungry.
We share funds with those already helping in the community so they can have more impact and help break the cycle of hunger. We share their stories of hope.
We nourish local communities by helping to transform lives. We bring everyone together to be a part of the solution.

“We’re just so grateful for this grant. It’s fantastic and will really help us with the meals we do. We won’t have to overload the ovens we have, so things will cook more evenly and quickly. Volunteers won’t have to keep opening and changing trays around.”
– Bayside Community Care team leader,
“We’re incredibly grateful for the support given to a local charity that is making a difference to families and others. The grant will help us continue to supply hot meals to about 50 people a week at the primary school’s donated hall where some people tell us that sometimes this is their only real meal.”
– The Salt Foundation co-founder,
“We have seven op shops to raise the capital we need to run our services and when a grant like this Feed Melbourne one comes along it is such a gift to us. It has had a huge impact.”
– Helping Hands Mission chief executive,
officer Melanie Kent
“The 34 domestic fridges/freezers are costing us a fortune in electricity to run every month. The cool room (funded by a Feed Melbourne grant) will reduce our expenditure and allow us to meet our capacity needs.”
– Northpoint Centre community services manager Brian O’Rourke
“Everyone here, especially at the food pantry, it doesn’t matter what you look like or what your story is, they just make you feel like you deserve it and it’s OK to ask for help. If I hadn’t reached out I don’t know where I would be, right now … this place was just a lifeline to me.”
– Nicole Breitner
“They didn’t make me feel bad, they welcomed me. It is not about who you are or what your colour is, they help whoever needs them. They are such a blessing. They are really working to raise people up and give them another chance.”
