During winter many people experience a gap between what they can afford and what they need, often making a choice between housing and electricity or food bills.
Due to Covid-19 our foodbank has experienced demand like never before. With financial stress due to job losses and pay cuts, we are seeing many families who suddenly find there’s a gap where the food money should be.
OCTACAN is here to fill that gap, and with your support we CAN help! Please join us for the annual can collection for Dunedin's busiest foodbank.
You can help fill the gap by collecting and donating as many cans as you can carry! Get your colleagues, friends and family involved and start collecting now. Then bring your donations to the Lower Octagon during OCTACAN on Thursday 30 July.
When times are hard, Dunedin shows its spirit of generosity. Your participation will help us raise $6,000 and collect 14,000 cans.
