Care Package Program – ceased May 2024

Formerly known as the Iceolation Program – created in May 2020 – the Care Package Program was established to address food security issues in our community by providing a nutritionally diverse grocery pack to families, couples and individuals across Melbourne. In partnership with local IGAs, 300 Blankets purchased groceries, IGA stores packed the bags, and volunteers delivered the packs every Saturday fortnight. The program was established not just for the food; but also the opportunity to connect with recipients.

While the program is no longer available, 300 Blankets successfully delivered 6,370 Care Packages across 4 years of activity.
Recipient Testimonial: “Thank you to everyone at 300 Blankets. I am so humbled and grateful to everyone. You have all been a lifeline to us. I so appreciate your hard work and efforts.” Francine
Recipient Testimonial: “Thank you for the delivery when you all could be home with family. We are blessed to be able to get food. Sincere thanks to the volunteers that work tirelessly so all this is possible” Pamela.
300 Blankets has now ceased to offer this program, as of May 2024. If you’re a previous recipient looking for food or material aid support, connect via our contact us page for referrals.
