EMERGENCY FOOD RELIEF

The Yellow Hamper project was developed to assist those in the community who have been impacted by situations outside of their control including domestic violence, Covid-19, Ill heath, long-term carers, unemployment, and disadvantaged communities.

The Team at Big Yellow Umbrella have established a partnership with OzHarvest and SecondBite to deliver food twice per week to support this cause.  This food includes fruit, vegetables and bread.

Our mission is to support the community by providing a basic hamper filled with items to cook family meals to ensure no one in Macarthur goes hungry.

You can assist this project by donating the following dry goods items which can be made to the Big Yellow Umbrella office Monday - Friday 9am - 4pm:

  • Rice, Pasta & Noodles
  • Meal kits - taco's, curries, Italian
  • Sauces - tomato, bbq, chilli, oyster, fish, soy, stir-fry sauces, pasta sauces
  • Tins of baked beans, spaghetti, tuna, salmon, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste and soups (ring pull cans)
  • Cereals
  • Desserts

  • Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Milo, Coffee
  • Long life milk (UHT)
