Summary

COVID-19, and the resulting financial impacts 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.

Challenge

Food insecurity is has increased dramatically following the pandemic, so much so that it can be found throughout Australia and on any given day, more than half a million households are battling to meet their food needs. They may be compromising on the quality and variety of their food, eating less often or going entire days without eating. Households with children are 1.5 times more likely to be struggling. There are people who are being affected in every neighbourhood, city and country alike.

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 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.
