Hope Filled Bags helps local churches to respond to food insecurity in their community. It is estimated that 4%-13% of Australians struggle to secure the adequate quantity of nutritious food.
A church running this project provides its members with Hope grocery bags who distribute these to their family, friends, neighbours and others who are motivated to donate grocery items to those in the community who are living tough. The Hope Filled Bags are returned by the happy donors and the donation is then brought to the church where it is delivered to the local Food Bank or another local community service organisation.

“A person acting alone cannot achieve a lot but when many people act together and pool their various skills and talents a great deal can be done.
This initiative is a good example of that.” - Gil Muir, President, Bennettswood Conference, St. Vincent de Paul Society
