The Al-Ihsan Foundation is a not for profit public relief organisation determined to provide aid to those in need.
According to its website, Al-Ihsan understands the importance of immediate access to food, medical aid and emergency shelters during times of natural disasters, poverty and other emergency situations.
"We thus strive to provide rapid mobilisation and action, with a mission to establish and maintain a global society that serves and empowers all those in need," a statement read.
"Al-Ihsan ventures to continue to assist and serve communities until our assistance and services are no longer required," it continued.
Mingaan Wiradjuri Aboriginal Corporation's Aunty Sharon Riley said she was contacted by an Indigenous member of the Lebanese community about the donation.
"It's a really nice thing to do and we are more than happy to distribute the boxes to not only our Aboriginal community but anyone who needs some help.
"This is a donation out to the community to help in these unprecedented times," she said.
Each box contains food items such as rice, pasta, sugar, dates and other canned goods.
If you would like a food hamper contact Mingaan on 6352 2473 and they will kindly organise to distribute the boxes and drop them off to you.
