Summary

COVID-19, and the resulting mass unemployment being experienced across the country has been the catalyst in the exponential increase in food insecurity. Foodbank is in urgent need of funding to source key staple foods that don't come in sufficient quantities via traditional rescue channels. This will enable Foodbank to provide a sustainable supply in a variety of essential foods that are nutritious and convenient for vulnerable Australians during these extraordinary and unprecedented times.

Challenge

One in six Australian adults haven't had enough to eat in the last year and, even more shockingly, 1.2 million children have gone hungry. The global pandemic has put a spotlight on a crisis that has gone under society's radar for far too long. Uncertain access to food affects Australians from all walks of life, as food insecurity is not restricted to the obviously vulnerable groups in the community such as homeless people and the unemployed.

Solution

Funding will be directed to Foodbank's Key Staples Program, which will enable us to provide a consistent and sustainable supply in a variety of essential foods that are nutritious and convenient for those in need during these extraordinary times. This includes foods and products such as cereal, milk, canned vegetables, pasta, meal bases, rice and meat. We will be able to source these critical foods that don't come in sufficient quantities via traditional rescue channels.

Long-Term Impact

Given the current environment, Foodbank proudly provides food relief to more than one million people per month and will continue to do so for as long as they need it! Moreover, our services do not only address people's immediate nutrition needs but also contribute to improvements in their health, emotional well-being, sense of self-worth, social relationships and ultimately overall standard of living.
