WHAT CAN YOU BAKE?
Individually wrap goodies for good health and safety. Label with all ingredients too if possible. Gluten free goods are always required too, label well.
They love brownies (cut them into little pieces to go further) piklets, scones... that comfort style food that makes you think of home!
Today the Brisbane River will peak. From expereience today the SES centers will be quiet while volunteers rest up for the big job of clean up in the coming days.
With 180,000 homes still without power, 400 Energex crews are on the ground so find your local Energex Crew - crew members have told us sometimes they can go 18 hours without food relief when they are busy working to get our power back on. For those on the Northside of Brisbane there are Energex Hubs at Geebung and Caboolture however the BEST option is to go to where trees are down near you and get the attention of the Police on duty or a member of the crew - all power will be off if they are working on the power lines - but SAFETY is important - get permission from the team first and then handover your baked treats :) let us know how you go and post photos!
The idea is to look at these locations as a guide and go forth, bake and deliver some treats to those who you think need it. This is not a comprehensive list, but just an idea. Report back to us with updates of what is needed!
