Students hungry to help food charity

Almost 30 kilograms of food have been donated to a hunger relief organisation by students from Charles Darwin University’s centre in Sydney.

Four student volunteers delivered the boxes of non-perishable food, donated by fellow students and staff, to the Foodbank New South Wales depot.

Centre manager Mary Street said the donations were collected under a gift giving tree at CDU and aimed to address issues of hunger and disadvantage.

“CDU Sydney students have demonstrated their willingness to help the needy,” Ms Street said. 

“By becoming more socially conscious, students can see how their efforts can help break the cycle of disadvantage and support hunger relief, not just locally but also globally."

Sufyan Javed said he and fellow student volunteers were proud to support the charity.

“We are glad that charities like Foodbank understand the significance of food waste and the importance of helping those who are in need,” Sufyan said.
