Octacan 2016

Filling our foodbank

Thursday 23 June, 7:30am - 2:30pm

The Octagon, Dunedin

Support Octacan by collecting and donating as many cans as you can carry!  Get your workplace, team mates, friends and family together and start collecting now.


Our Family Works’ foodbank is the busiest in Dunedin and during winter demand is even higher. The foodbank currently provides families with about 10,000 food items each month, a figure expected to increase as the weather gets colder. We are hoping Octacan 2016 will bring in 15,500 cans to keep up with demand.

The Otago winter is cold, and it feels even worse if you can’t afford to buy warming food for you and your family.

Businesses can get involved too.  A team from MediaWorks and The Breeze will be out and about picking up your office can collections on the day. To register your business for a can pick-up, email Jasmin Graham, jasming@psotago.org.nz. But, make it worth their while!

I can, you can, we can OCTACAN!
