Toll NQX lends Anglicare a helping hand to feed those in need
When Anglicare opened its new Helping Hand Community Food store in Cairns, Toll NQX was proud to be on hand to help. The store is expected to help 200 people a day who are in need, making sure they get access to basic food essentials.
Toll NQX will transport a tonne of dry food each week by road and rail from Foodbank Brisbane to the new Community Food Store, including tinned fruit, vegetables, pasta and cereals.
The team at Toll NQX began transporting food in March in preparation for the opening of the new facility, and will provide transport assistance on an ongoing basis.
Toll NQX Acting General Manager Ross Longmire said his team is committed to supporting communities.
“Transporting food is one of our strengths so we knew we could provide valuable support to this project. We’re really pleased to help support people in our community in this way, particularly when they are doing it tough,” said Mr Longmire.
“We appreciate the role that Anglicare plays throughout Australia and look forward to working with them to help feed those in need.”
