Compass Offices Launches a Food Drive to Make Life of Australians Easier


Melbourne and Sydney, 14 November 2022Compass Offices, one of the leading flexible office space providers in the Asia-Pacific Region, has launched a food drive to offer a helping hand to those in plight in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.

Food insecurity is plaguing numerous Australians resulting in a great deal of families in Australia requiring assistance from food relief organisations. The soaring cost of living also exacerbates the problem. As a corporation attaching great importance to food insecurity, Compass Offices would like to help those in need by initiating a food drive in Melbourne and Sydney. The company invites all its clients and partners in Melbourne and Sydney and communities of both cities to participate in the campaign. Compass Offices makes an all-out effort to give back to the communities of the two cities and change the lives of those living in hardships.

The company operates 4 business locations in Melbourne and another 4 business locations in Sydney, offering a good network of food donation collection points across key business districts in Melbourne’s central business district (CBD) and Docklands, as well as Sydney’s CBD and North Sydney.

Compass Offices partners with Foodbank Victoria and Foodbank NSW & ACT, two offices of Foodbank Australia. Foodbank is the largest hunger relief charity in Australia, which is the pantry to the charity sector, linking surplus food and groceries to people in need.

The public in Melbourne and Sydney can donate shelf stable food that is within the best before date, with unopened packaging, and with ingredient and allergen listings. Most needed food items include canned fruit, vegetables, soups, seafood and meals, as well as breakfast cereal, pasta, noodles and rice, and long life milk and juice. Some daily necessities are also considered most needed items. Examples are shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, dental floss, toothpaste, toothbrushes, tissues and toilet paper.

Foodbank Australia will arrange the distribution of the collected items and ensure their smooth delivery to where the items can do most good.

Compass Offices Country Manager, Australia, Andrew Rothstadt, said: “Food insecurity affects many Australians, and a large number of households in Australia struggle to earn sufficient money to purchase daily supplies. As an enterprise adhering to a principle of care and love, we do wish to contribute what we can do to help those in dire straits.”

Rothstadt said his entire team in Australia have the same conviction, and that both communities of Melbourne and Sydney would support this good cause too.

“Let’s make our efforts count. May our donations make a difference in Australia!” 

Collection points will be open at all Compass Offices business centres in Melbourne and Sydney from 14 November to 19 December 2022. Please click here for Compass Offices’ locations in Melbourne and here for locations in Sydney.
