Donate Now

Anglicare North Queensland relies on the financial support of generous people to help all those who turn to us for assistance. There are specific services that are government funded, but a large number of our programs are only made possible by your donations. Your support enables us to meet the needs of the most vulnerable and at-risk members of our community.

Anglicare Cairns Food Bank

The Anglicare Cairns Food Bank was started back in October 2012 through the Second Bite and Coles partnership with just two volunteers.  We now have a team of over 40 volunteers and we collect and deliver over 3000kgs of food each week.

Also in partnership with Brothers Leagues Club we are able to provide frozen meals to people who are doing it tough.

Fundraising

As we are not Government Funded we have to generate our own income.  We have lots of fun doing this.  You will always find us at Rustys Markets on a Saturday selling jams and chutneys next door to the car park ramp on Sheridan Street.
