News World’s Biggest Hamper Pack Challenge
14 February 2018
Our long-standing partners at the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) recently undertook a massive challenge: to pack 10,000 food hampers for World Food Day. Annually, 3.6million Australians are food insecure. Flight Centre partnered with Foodbank Australia to provide relief for the overwhelming number of Australians in need.
The challenge took place on 17 October 2017 around Australia. After a national campaign, 4,104 donations were received, and FCTG Leisure and Corporate made a fantastic final contribution that ensured Foodbank could purchase enough supplies to rise to the challenge.
Some of our team headed down to the Brisbane site to help the Flight Centre team pack these much needed hampers. We also donated 500 custom printed aprons for Flight Centre volunteers to wear at this world record breaking event.
