"Parent food bag"

About: Perth Children's Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

As a parent that has been in and out of Perth Children's Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital for weeks/months at at time, for the last couple of years the food hasn’t changed. Please change the food I’m begging you. I rely on this bag of food and a muffin for breakfast. I’m sure it’s not just me who has said this. As nurses can’t give you anything throughout the day I am sick to my stomach with hunger until my husband can make it here. He works long hours and weekends and week days to support of little one who has special needs. It may just be a bag for you, but parents like me struggle to leave there little ones to get food and that’s if they can afford it. 

Please think about this, it would be something a lot of parents would appreciate
