Volunteers from all walks of life are joining forces to help some of Canterbury-Bankstown’s most vulnerable and needy residents.

Mayor Khal Asfour was joined by Councillor Bilal El-Hayek, former Councillor Mohammad Zaman, Lakemba MP Jihad Dib, Lighthouse Community Support and members of the Bangladeshi community, to distribute hundreds of hampers throughout the City on Father’s Day.

“Lockdowns have been very difficult on all of us, but we are managing to get through,” Mayor Asfour said.

“But there are many in our community who are facing real hardship, and are struggling to put food on the table... It is these people who need our support.”

Today (Monday 6 September), Mayor continued doing his rounds, assisting charitable groups dropping off food hampers to needy families in the Padstow, Milperra and Revesby areas.

Council has set-up a weekly food hamper distribution hub in Belmore, to further support the community during the pandemic.

Every Monday, Council works with Oz Harvest and local non-government organisations to collect and deliver up to 500 food hampers to households in need.

The hampers contain rice, canned foods and fresh produce. Work is also underway to introduce culturally specific hampers, to give community members more than just comfort, but a taste of home.
